    Addressing the unique needs of adults born with heart defects

    The Kentucky Adult Congenital Heart (KACH) Program at the UK Gill Heart & Vascular Institute is the only such program in Central and Eastern Kentucky. Our experts partner with you to provide personalized, adult-focused care and treatment of your congenital heart defect.

    Adults born with heart defects face unique challenges. They outgrow their pediatric cardiologists, but their heart problems can be very different from cardiac conditions that begin during adulthood.

    Our KACH Program is led by Andrew R. Leventhal, MD, PhD, one of only a few adult congenital heart disease specialists in the nation. With broad cardiovascular disease experience – including heart valve repair, structural heart conditions and interventional cardiology – Dr. Leventhal provides personalized, expert management and treatment of your unique congenital heart condition.

    Take the first step toward lifelong care of your congenital heart condition. Contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment.
