For more than three decades, the Pediatric Cardiology Center of Oregon (PCCO) has been pioneering care for children with congenital heart disease.
Based at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, PCCO has been at the forefront of several pediatric cardiology breakthroughs.
For example, in 2016, 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.
Dr. Kyser also provides these special procedures, among others: interventional cardiology, PFO device closure, Melody Valve placement (percutaneous pulmonary), VSD device closure, PDA device closure, as well as the Fontan, Norwood and hybrid procedures.
At PCCO, 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. Our affiliation with the Randall means children can be treated in a new, state-of-the-art facility designed specifically to promote a healing environment.
Additionally, as leaders in the field of fetal medicine, two of our cardiologists are fellowships trained in advanced imaging, such as cardiac MRI and cardiac CT.
The provider team at PCCO specializes in pediatric and fetal cardiology, interventional pediatric cardiology, pediatric electrophysiology pacing, and advanced cardiac imaging. We’re also fully equipped to provide nonsurgical repair procedures for many heart defects in our cardiac catheterization laboratory.
Best of all, as the premier Oregon pediatric cardiology program, our staff regularly travels to our Oregon clinics in Albany, Springfield, Pendleton, Eugene, Medford, Grants Pass, Bend, Salem and The Dalles, as well as our Washington clinics in Longview and Vancouver. We understand the difficulties faced by many families forced to travel long distances for vital medical appointments, so our statewide outreach is designed to relieve parents and young patients of this burden.
At Pediatric Cardiology Center of Oregon, we believe that everybody — especially the little ones — deserve top-notch care. That’s why we’ll work to formulate a treatment plan that works best for your family.
We accept most insurance plans — but we’re also happy to make other financial arrangements including personal checks, cash, money orders and most major credit cards. Finally, we’re sensitive to the fact that some families need additional payment arrangements, and we’re more than happy to assist in this regard.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact PCCO. For appointment information, it’s best to get in touch with PCCO as far in advance as possible. And, of course, you may call our billing office directly at 866-622-2455 or 360-667-3045. We’re here to serve you.
