Dr. Pham is a member of the Arrhythmia and Pacing (Electrophysiology) service at Texas Children’s Hospital. She specializes in management of cardiac arrhythmias, and management of patients with pacemakers and defibrillators. Dr. Pham also has a special interest exercise physiology and utilizing cardiopulmonary exercise stress testing as a tool to assess a patient’s functional capacity. Her research interest includes developing strategies to increase utilization of exercise stress testing in the congenital population, and cardiac rehabilitation. Dr. Pham strives to promote cardiac fitness to improve the quality of life of those restricted by underlying heart disease. Ultimately, she hopes to build a Cardiac Rehabilitation center at Texas Children’s Hospital.
