Dr. Webb is a board-certified pediatric cardiologist with specialization in cardiac catheterization of newborns, children and adults. She strives to provide evidence-based, progressive, high-quality care to every patient and believes every child and family is special and deserves the treatment she would want her own family members to receive. Dr. Webb has a special interest in pulmonary hypertension and cardiopulmonary interactions in premature infants. She works in collaboration with the pulmonary hypertension team and is a leader of the bronchopulmonary dysplasia team. 

Her clinical interests include pulmonary hypertension; cardiopulmonary interactions of bronchopulmonary dysplasia; the impact of cardiac shunts on the premature heart and lung; percutaneous valve, device and stent placement; angioplasty and valvuloplasty. Her research interests span the broad spectrum of interventional catheterization procedures and pediatric cardiology with a specific interest in evaluating cardiopulmonary interactions in premature infants and better defining the approach and need for cardiac catheterization for these children.
