Meet Michael Di Maria, MD

My approach is to help educate families and empower them to make informed decisions about their child's healthcare. I am lucky to be part of a multidisciplinary team that cares for children with single ventricle hearts, based on the unique needs of these kids and young adults. Our emphasis is on wellness - both of mind and body.

"I remember the day in med school when I walked into an elevator with a 3-year-old. That was the best part of my day; so I thought, well, that seals the deal on pediatrics."

- Dr. Michael Di Maria

For Patients:
My research interests include studying the way the heart pumps in children with congenital heart disease. I am also interested in the outcomes of children with single ventricle heart disease at increased altitude, compared to children living at sea level.
For Referring Providers:
My research interests include the evaluation of heart function in children with pulmonary hypertension, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, single ventricle heart disease, etc. I am also interested in the outcomes of our single ventricle population here at increased altitude. I have created a registry of patients who have undergone Fontan operation and are cared for at our center.
