Meet Adel Younoszai, MD

Every child should have a chance to "dream big" no matter what their heart looks like on the inside. I specialize in the care of children with severe forms of congenital heart disease - especially those with only one ventricle ("half a heart"). We focus on not only treating heart disease, but promoting wellness both at home and in school so kids can learn in the most appropriate environment. Every child should discover how to take appropriate risks and dream about their future.

"To me the most important thing [for my patients] is, can they dream? Can they dream of the future? Can they dream of growing up? And I think we can give that to kids."

- Dr. Adel Younoszai
