  • David Barron

    Senior Cardiac Surgeon

    I am one of four heart surgeons at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, which is one of the biggest centres for children with heart problems in the United Kingdom.  Over a third of our patients are new-born babies and another third are under one year of age. In Birmingham we are well known throughout the world for the surgery we do in some of  the most complicated and high-risk types  of heart problem. Children and babies with these problems are sent to us from all over the UK and from elsewhere in the world to have their surgery at BCH.

    I do a lot of work with the Royal College of Surgeons to develop training programmes  for the surgeons of the future, and work with the Department of Health to improve the standards and quality of children’s heart services in the UK.

    I also operate on patients born with congenital heart disease who are now adults, many of whom have already had surgery when they were children. We do these operations at the University Hospital Birmingham where we work with our own team of specialists.
