Dr. Edward L. Bove is the chair of the Department of Cardiac Surgery, which consists of the Divisions of Pediatric and Adult Cardiac Surgery. The Division of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery is one of the busiest congenital heart programs in the U.S. and the largest in the state of Michigan, performing over 900 procedures annually. Patients come to the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital from around the world for surgical treatment of all forms of congenital heart defects. The congenital heart center is perhaps best known for the treatment of complex forms of single ventricle, especially hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Dr. Bove's particular research interest is in the area of computer flow modeling of the circulation in complex congenital heart disease.
