Advances in treatment, medicine and surgery have essentially created a new cardiology specialty - adult congenital heart disease. The reason? Before these advances, babies born with congenital heart abnormalities typically did not survive into adulthood. Now, babies and children receive treatment for their condition and live normal life spans. But just because they were treated as children does not mean their heart care is completed. Those congenital conditions can still create problems into adulthood. That's where specialists like cardiologist Dr. Shane Tsai and heart surgeon Dr. Kim Duncan come in. To make an appointment with an adult congenital heart disease specialist, call The Nebraska Medical Center at 1-800-922-0000 or visit
