    Collapse Overview
    Richard W. Kim, MD, FACS, completed his training at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia under Dr. Thomas Spray and has been mentored by Dr. Vaughn Starnes for nearly a decade. He is an expert in the surgical repair of congenital heart defects and routinely performs complex neonatal procedures and multiple re-do operations. He has extensive operative experience for all forms of single ventricle lesions including Norwood palliation for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He is actively funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and has co-authored recent publications in Nature, Science, Nature Communications, and Nature Genetics.

    Dr. Kim seeks to leverage cutting-edge gene discovery platforms to advance the clinical management of children undergoing congenital heart surgery. By using machine learning algorithms to relate genetic changes to functional or physiologic differences in how individual children respond to cardiac surgery, he hopes to develop new paradigms in pediatric cardiac surgery that optimize patient care by tailoring surgery to each individual patient.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
