Heart Center

Heart Center
State-of-the-(He)art Technology in 3-D

Imagine hearing the news that only half of your child’s heart is working properly. Now, imagine if you could actually see, and hold, a tiny replica of their heart so that you could better understand how doctors intended to fix the problem.

Heart Center

Imagine hearing the news that only half of your child’s heart is working properly. Now, imagine if you could actually see, and hold, a tiny replica of their heart so that you could better understand how doctors intended to fix the problem.

That was the experience Luke’s family had when doctors informed them their young son needed surgery. The cardiology team that saved Luke’s life created a printed 3-D model of his tiny heart. Using the brightly colored replicas to explain the exact location of the problem, patient families benefit from the deeper understanding of how the problem will be solved; and physicians use these replicas for pre-surgical planning and practice. It’s just one example of the innovative, family-centered care delivered at the Heart Center at Phoenix Children’s.

Your investment will enable the Heart Center to further invest in technologies like the 3D Cardiac Imaging Lab as well as groundbreaking research that will improve the treatment and outcomes for children with cardiac conditions.

Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s

Dr. David Adelson and Dr. Angus Wilfong have together conquered new ground in the fight against epilepsy. These brilliant physicians at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s are using cutting-edge techniques to cure epilepsy for many children. Dr. Wilfong pioneered a minimally invasive laser ablation technique used by Dr. Adelson to surgically destroy tumors that cause hard-to-control seizures. The procedure is less risky, less painful, leaves fewer side effects, and offers a shorter recovery time than other surgeries.

The impact that innovative treatments like this, and the many others that physicians at Barrow at Phoenix Children’s are developing, will improve the quality of life for children with neurological and behavioral diseases and disorders.

Your investment will advance cutting edge neurological care in areas like epilepsy treatment and traumatic brain injuries, while also helping us attract energized, innovate and driven physician-scientists.

Beating Cancer, One Round at a Time, at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders

Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders

Cancer doesn’t fight fair. So in order to give children battling cancer a fighting chance, we need to be able to deliver the best, most effective treatments for our patients whose cancers and tumors are inoperable. And we need to be able to do it in the timeliest way possible.

Much progress has been made since the 1980s when survival rates for patients facing pediatric cancer were abysmal. But there is still much work ahead. For children with particularly aggressive cancers, only 10 percent will survive. That is why clinical trials and comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care makes for more effective treatments.

The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Phoenix Children’s was recently expanded, now led by Division Chief Cynthia Wetmore, MD. Dr. Wetmore brings experience with world-class institutions like Mayo Clinic and St. Judes Research Hospital. Her reputation for being a formidable opponent against pediatric brain tumors, in particular, puts her in an ideal position to attract more pharmaceutical sponsorship and clinical trials to Phoenix Children’s.

The impact for all patients battling cancer (not just children, and not just Arizonans), will significantly increase their chances of leading longer, happier, cancer-free lives.

Your investment will fund the initiation of new studies; the development of new cancer-fighting drug therapies; and will help expand the team of research assistants and doctors at the Center for Blood and Cancer Disorders.
