Current Research and Scholarly Interests

V. Mohan Reddy, MD, chief of pediatric cardiac surgery at Packard Children’s Hospital and associate professor of cardiothoracic surgery at Stanford’s School of Medicine, specializes in correcting heart defects in premature or extremely low birth weight babies. In a Stanford School of Medicine news release, Reddy states that “a lot of pediatric cardiologists and neonatologists think these kids are inoperable, but I believe that is a myth. We have the most experience in the world operating on these extremely low birth-weight babies.”

A pioneer in the field of pediatric cardiac surgery, Reddy successfully operated on what surgeons at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford believe is the smallest baby ever to survive a type of open-heart surgery called an arterial switch procedure. He also provided the surgical expertise required to fashion the stent/valve combination required to replace a heart valve in a 9-month-old girl, the youngest child ever to undergo the procedure, without opening her chest or putting her on a heart-lung machine.
Reddy earned his masters degree from the Institute of Medicine in New Delhi and his medical degree from Kakatiya Medical College in Warngal, India. He completed residencies in India as well as serving as senior resident in pediatric cardiac surgery at The Children's Hospital in Boston. In 1992, he completed his fellowship at UCSF where he later became associate professor of surgery and director of pediatric cardiac surgery. He was a finalist for the Western Thoracic Surgical Association’s Samson Resident Award in 1995 and joined Stanford in July of 2001.

His research and clinical work focuses on fetal heart surgery, surgery of premature and very low birth weight neonates, and cerebral protection during heart surgery. Reddy is a member of many professional societies, including the American Association for Thoracic Surgeons, the American Heart Association, and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles.
