About George B. Mallory

In 2001, Dr. Mallory joined the Baylor College of Medicine pediatric faculty and founded the TCH Lung Transplant Program. The program was approved in 2002 and the first transplant was performed in October of that year. Since that time, the TCH Program has become the most active program in the world with 10 to 20 transplants performed per year with the lowest wait list death in the nation. Over the last ten years, the TCH program is one of only three programs consistently performing lung transplants in infants and young children. The number of original publications and review articles from members of the medical and surgical teams exceeds every other program over the last decade. Jeffrey Heinle MD is the surgical director of the program. Okan Elidemir became medical director in 2006 and Dr. Marc Schecter became medical director in 2010.

Since 2005, Dr. Mallory has also been medical director of the region's only pediatric pulmonary hypertension program, which will be certified as a pediatric clinical center by the Pulmonary Hypertension Association in the coming months and is one of the few directed by pulmonologists. Drs. Nidhy Varghese and Fadel Ruiz partner with Dr. Mallory in PH care, research and education. Together, they are involved in anumber of basic and clinical research. Dr. Mallory, despite advancing age is planning on working for several more years with emphasis on lung transplantation and pulmonary hypertension.

Dr Mallory is a dedicated editor and teacher. He co-edits the pediatric pulmonology section of UpToDate. He is on the editorial Board of Pediatric Pulmonology and reviews dozens of papers for several professional journals each year. He is heavily invested in the education of pediatric pulmonology fellows and pediatric residents at Texas Children's Hospital.
