Since 1986, the team at Pediatric Cardiology Center of Oregon (PCCO) has been pioneering important advances in treatment. We performed the first Norwood procedure for hypoplastic left heart syndrome in Oregon as well as the first arterial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries.

In 2016, our very own Dr. James Kyser became the first — and only — pediatric cardiologist in Oregon to provide the Edwards SAPIEN XT transcatheter heart valve procedure for pulmonic valve replacement to pediatric patients.

PCCO is equipped to treat the entire spectrum of pediatric cardiology conditions — from innocent murmurs to the most complex congenital heart diseases. Plus, our affiliation with the Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, Oregon, ensures that children are able to be treated in a state-of-the-art facility designed specifically to promote a protective and healing environment. We have an active bloodless surgery program, and we also perform surgery and catheter procedures on patients from Alaska.

Furthermore, our staff of board-certified pediatric cardiologists regularly travel to our clinics throughout the region. In Oregon: Albany, Springfield, Pendleton, Medford, Grants Pass and Salem. In Washington: Longview, plus multiple clinic sites in the Vancouver metro area.
