Adult Congenital Heart Program

Adult Congenital Heart Program

The University of Mississippi Medical Center is home to the state's only adult congenital heart program. University Heart provides specialized care to adults with congenital heart defects, whether newly diagnosed or previously repaired. Our patients have access to the full range of congenital heart services and specialists, all backed by Mississippi's only academic medical center.

A Team Approach to congenital heart care

Specialized care is central to long-term quality of life for adults living with congenital heart defects. Our team of adult cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, congenital heart surgeons, and other healthcare professionals work together to develop individual patient plans to treat and manage heart disease.

Individual care plans address:

We work closely with patients to help prevent and manage medical complications such as pulmonary hypertension and heart failure. We also work with patients’ own primary care physicians and cardiologists to provide continuous care through all stages of life.

My Personal Heart Passport

University Heart provides adult congenital heart patients with a free copy of My Personal Heart Passport. This booklet helps physicians and patients keep track of medical history, medication and dosages, emergency contacts, and other important information.

A Partnership with Children's of Mississippi

Small hearts need special care. The adult congenital heart program at UMMC works closely with the Children's of Mississippi congenital heart program to help older children transition into adult care. Our team partners with primary care physicians and cardiologists throughout the state to provide congenital heart patients with the continuous care they need.

Drs. Michael McMullan and William Campbell see adult patients the second Monday of every month at the new Children's of Mississippi – Tupelo clinic. To refer an adult patient, please call (601) 984-4567.
