Dear Friends & Colleagues,
We are excited to present the third biennial Rady Children’s Specialists of San Diego, A Medical Foundation,
Department of Children’s Surgery 2011-2013 report. This report is a culmination of the accomplishments of our
surgeons and surgeon-scientists following the inception of the medical foundation at Rady Children’s Hospital-San
Diego (RCHSD) in September 2009.
The Department of Surgery of the medical foundation includes clinically active members of the hospital divisions of:
Cardiovascular Surgery
Maternal and Fetal Medicine
Neurosurgery
Pediatric General Surgery
Ophthalmology
Orthopedics
Otolaryngology and
Urology
Head and Neck Surgery
The medical practice foundation has provided a structure for the surgical faculty to work collaboratively to improve
surgical clinical care, education, and enhance research activities. Members of the department are faculty in the
Departments of Surgery, Orthopedics, Reproductive Medicine and Neurosciences at the University of California, San
Diego (UC San Diego). The foundation has fostered even greater synergy between surgical colleagues at UC San Diego
and RCHSD. This partnership has allowed the department to continue to provide world class surgical care for the
region’s patients and families.
RCHSD has continued to grow its surgical volume, performing greater than 21,000 operative cases in the last year.
We are also very close to performing our first cardiac transplant procedure after successfully attracting a world class
pediatric cardiac transplant surgeon. Our new Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit is providing the best of care to our
Heart Institute patients.
A new surgical academic fund has been created in partnership with RCHSD to help finance surgical research on
campus and to leverage our electronic medical record. This complements the remarkable basic science achievements
of the research faculty at UC San Diego. RCHSD is committed to providing the best of care for children through
research and clinical expertise.
Sincerely,

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES
INPATIENT/OUTPATIENT
The Cardiology Division is the only
comprehensive tertiary care provider of
cardiovascular services in the region (San
Diego, Imperial, and South Orange Counties), and it receives referrals from Balboa
Naval Medical Center, as well as the San
Diego Regional Kaiser Medical Center.
In addition, the Division is the major
off island referral center for the State of
Hawaii. The Division’s clinical volumes for
the academic year 2012-2013 were 12,085
total outpatient visits including 1397
patients seen in satellite offices. 697 catheterizations were performed, about 70%
4
of which were interventional catheterizations. The echocardiography laboratory
performed 9511 echocardiograms.
In the last five years there has been
steady growth in all categories. The
growth of the division clinical volumes
has been related both to expanding the
referral practice within Southern California and neighboring states, as well as
to meeting previously unmet demand for
services within the traditional referral
regions. The Division’s clinical volumes
place the program among the largest
pediatric and congenital heart disease
centers in the United States.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
The Division’s basic and translational
research program is anchored by Dr. Paul
Grossfeld and Dr. Vishal Nigam.
Dr. Grossfeld investigates the genetic
basis of congenital heart defects and
Jacobsen’s Syndrome (11qdel).
His
additional projects include induced Pleuripotent Stem Cells to derive cardiac
lineages from human Jacobsen syndrome
patient fibroblasts (“Disease in a Dish”);
defining gene regulatory pathways
involving ETS-1 in cardiac neural crest
cell development, and pathways that suppress the development of heart defects;
and the genetic basis of cognitive and
behavioral defects in Jacobsen syndrome.
Dr. Nigam’s laboratory is focused on
investigating the molecular and genetic
mechanisms involved in aortic valve
stenosis and in valve calcification. In
addition, he is studying the role of biomechanical stretch on activation of
calcification pathways and the role of biomechanical stressors on cardiac defects,
and the mechanism of how stretch and
shear stress stimulate ventricular growth
in utero.
The Division’s faculty and fellows have
also been involved in a large number of clinical research projects. There are currently 31
active IRB approved clinical projects:

CARDIOTHORACIC SURGERY
The Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Division of the Division of Cardiothoracic
Surgery at the UC San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine is based at Rady
Children’s Hospital-San Diego (RCHSD). The Division, in conjunction with
the Division of Pediatric Cardiology, provides cardiovascular surgery services
for infants, children and adults with congenital and acquired heart disease.
The Division serves the San Diego metropolitan area (population: 3.2 million)
and it is a major referral center for Imperial and Orange Counties, Hawaii,
New Mexico, Mexico, and the Pacific Rim Islands. Dr. John J. Lamberti is the
Joyce and Eugene Klein Director of the Heart Institute at RCHSD and he is
Division Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery at RCHSD. Dr. Eric Devaney joined
the division on April 1, 2012. Dr. Devaney is an Associate Professor of Surgery
at UCSD and he is the Director of Cardiac Transplantation and Cardiac Assist
Devices at RCHSD. Dr. Devaney has also assumed the role of Medical
Director of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Critical Care at RCHSD.
The Division’s clinical volume for the academic years 20112013 remained steady when compared to previous academic years.
The complexity of the caseload has increased due to increasing
referrals from outlying areas in Southern California and the State
of Hawaii. RCHSD is a “high volume” pediatric cardiac surgical
program according to the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS)
Congenital Heart Surgery Database. The Division’s outcomes
are comparable with other leading high volume centers. The STS
analysis is based upon risk-adjusted data. The complexity score for
RCHSD is slightly higher than the national average reflecting our
role as a major referral center.

Medical Center, San Diego; the San Diego
Regional Kaiser Medical Center; Tripler
Army Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii;
Kapiolani Medical Center for Women
and Children, Honolulu, Hawaii; Straub
Clinic, Honolulu, Hawaii and the Kaiser
Permanente Medical Group, Honolulu,
Hawaii. The Division’s clinical volume
for the academic years 2011-2013 included 514 open-heart, 137 closed-heart and
229 miscellaneous cardiovascular surgical
procedures. The faculty provides consultative services at UCSD Medical Center,
RCHSD, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital and
at all referral sites in Hawaii. In addition,
faculty members provide varying levels of
support for adult patients with congenital
heart disease undergoing treatment at all
of the adult hospitals in San Diego County.
Dr. John Lamberti and Dr. John
Moore organized and coordinated a three
day symposium in January 2012. The
symposium was entitled “Evolving Concepts in the Management of Complex
Congenital Heart Disease III”. The symposium represented the third in a series
of biennial meetings designed to address
the management of the most complex
forms of congenital heart disease. The
faculty consisted of multiple experts in
surgery and cardiology drawn from the
finest programs in North America.
RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
John J. Lamberti, MD: The Division par-
ticipates in multiple longitudinal studies
of congenital heart disease sponsored by
the Congenital Heart Surgeon’s Society.
Dr. Lamberti is the principal investigator
on multiple clinical protocols involving
complex congenital heart defects. The
studies are designed to evaluate the natural history, including before and after surgical therapy, of relatively rare congenital
heart defects in a multi-center collaborative effort.

MAJOR
GOALS &
PLANS
The RCHSD and UCSD Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery programs
are committed to fulfilling our mission to
provide optimal care for infants, children
and adults born with Congenital Heart
Defects and to advance our knowledge and
understanding of Congenital Heart Disease.
To implement our strategic plan for Cardiac
Services we have:
1. successfully completed the recruitment of a third pediatric cardiothoracic
surgeon, who is expected to begin
operating on site in November 2013. We
have recently added additional cardiology faculty with strong expertise in fetal
echo and cardiac MRI.
2. funding for and are in the process of
physician recruitment for leadership
positions in Cardiac Transplantation
and Cardiac Critical Care.
heart institute-surgery v5.indd 12
3. completed the installation of and are
currently actively using a dedicated
pediatric Cardiac MRI Scanner and a
new state of the art dedicated Pediatric
Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. We
are also working in our new cardiac
operating room. We have opened a dedicated Cardiovascular Intensive Care
Unit (CVICU), and we are on the verge
of moving into an expanded,
new Heart Center.
4. administrative and Board of Directors approval in place to establish an
in-house pediatric heart transplant
program associated with the UCSD
adult program. We are in process of
submitting our UNOS application for
cardiac transplantation with the long
range goal of adding a program in
lung transplantation.
1/23/14 4:37 PM
Eric J. Devaney, MD: Dr. Devaney has
a strong interest in basic science, clinical
research and cardiac transplantation. Dr.
Devaney has been instrumental in the
creation of a cardiovascular ICU (CVICU) at RCHSD. Dr. Devaney is responsible for the recruitment of personnel
and the creation of the infrastructure
that will permit RCHSD to begin cardiac
transplantation in 2014. Dr. Devaney is a
member of the RCHSD Research Council.

Maternal Fetal
Medicine
Physicians of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Division of Rady
Children’s Specialists of San Diego (RCSSD) have been
providing prenatal diagnosis, ultrasound imaging,
consultation, and pregnancy care to families and physicians
in San Diego, Imperial, and Riverside Counties since 1990.
The Division continues to focus on:
1. Expanding clinical activities.
2. Recruiting, and
3. Increasing our CME outreach.
Clinical Activities. Our inpatient service is at Sharp
Mary Birch Hospital for Women, and the outpatient offices
are in the Frost Street complex adjacent to the Sharp/Rady
Children’s Campus, as well as in Encinitas, Murrieta, San
Ysidro, and Grossmont Hospital. The group’s consultation
and outpatient volume continues to increase; we project
that we will perform over 15000 ultrasound examinations,
over 700 fetal echocardiogram, and nearly consultations
this year. The group continues to limit our delivery volume
to 500-700 deliveries per year.
Recruiting. The Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine
welcomed Dr. Tevy Tith in August, 2013. Dr. Neha Trivedi,
who joined us in September 2011, will be leaving us for
Kaiser this year, and we are in the process of recruiting a
replacement for her.
CME. The Division continues to sponsor a yearly High
Risk Obstetrics course each fall, and a Prenatal Diagnosis
course each spring or early summer. Registration numbers
have risen each year. Our 2013 Prenatal Diagnosis Course,
at Scripps Schaetzel Center on May 31/June 1, attracted
over 200 participants, and we are in the final planning stages for our High Risk OB course, which will be on November 2 at the TriCity Hospital.

Neurosurgery
Rady Children’s Specialists San Diego’s (RCSSD) Neurosurgery Division
has had a tremendously successful year, expanding its clinical activities
and research, training the next generation of pediatric neurosurgeons, and
continuing to broaden its national and international impact on neurosurgical care. Thanks to philanthropy and to the commitment of RCHSD
physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers, we are able to provide the best
neurosurgical care available to all children.
The Division of Neurosurgery is among the most respected centers in
the United States. The Division provides pediatric surgical evaluation, surgery and pre-operative and post-operative care for disorders of the brain,
spine and peripheral nerves. Among the conditions treated are cerebrovascular malformations, surgical treatment for epilepsy, peripheral nerve
disorders or injuries, brain and spinal cord tumors, cerebrospinal fluid diversion, and craniofacial diseases. From July 2011 to June 2012, RCSSD’s
Pediatric Neurosurgeons performed over 600 surgeries, including procedures for Brain Tumors (15%) including 17 skull base and 8 transsphenoidal approaches, Spinal Cord Tumors (3%), and CSF Diversion or shunting
procedures (10%) consisting of Revisions (6%), Insertions (6%), Lumbar
to Peritoneal Shunts (0.2%), and Reservoir Placement (0.5%). Our current
infection rate for CSF diversion is < 2.0%.
Other approaches included, Craniofacial Procedures (15%: 80% Open
and 20% Endoscopic), Epilepsy Surgery 6% (25% resective surgery and
75% VNS), Congenital Anomalies (Chiari Malformations 3%, Closed
Neural Tube Defects 3%, Open Neural Tube Defects 1%, and Encephaloceles 1%), Intracranial Cysts (5%), Brachial Plexopathies (0.7%), and
Vascular Anomalies (5%). Other cases included Skull Tumors (5%), Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy (5%), and Trauma Related Cases (5%) with
42 Intracranial Monitor Placements. The overall infection rate was < 2%.
Operative Case Duration was mean 1.9 + 1.2 hours (Range 17 minutes
to 8.05 hours) with a MODE of 2 hours. 65% of the procedures were graded as significant intracranial or spinal interventions.
We continue to offer tertiary care services for some of the county’s most
complex cases, including cerebrovascular disease, skull base surgery, and
minimally invasive endoscopic approaches. We continue to have one of
the largest practices for tumors in the United States. Combined craniofacial and neurological surgery cases continue to increase from 2003 to
the present. A number of patients present from National and International
Referrals.
There has been significant growth in the Spasticity and Epilepsy Programs to date. The Pediatric Vascular Service remains one of, if not the,
busiest in the world.

child life specialists, parent liaisons and
chaplains who help each family through
the initial surgery and subsequent radiation and/or chemotherapy regimens.
Services involved include Hematology/
Oncology, Neurosurgery, Neurology,
Radiology, Pathology, Ophthalmology,
Craniofacial, Head and Neck Surgery,
and Rehabilitation. Children are treated
with state-of-the-art medical and surgical programs. The center specializes
in the treatment of complex tumors in
children involving the midline, posterior
fossa, Cerebellopontine angle, and skull
base. John R. Crawford, MD directs
the neuro-oncology program. He is the
co-director of the multidisciplinary
neuro-oncology clinic and leads the
Monthly CNS Tumor Conferences. He
has also developed close relationships
on an international level allowing for the
inpatient surgery and care for children
with complex brain tumor from both
Hospital Infantil de las Californias in
Tijuana and throughout the world.
Complex radiation therapies are
provided by Kevin Murphy, MD, who
serves as the Chief of the Pediatric
Radiation Oncology Service, and is
an active member of the Children’s
Oncology Group (COG,) and Hal S.
Meltzer, MD. Dr. Murphy also serves as a

TEACHING
The Division was certified by the American Board of Pediatric Neurological
Surgery to have a Board Certified Fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery with
inclusion in the Match beginning in
2009. Our current fellow, Alexa Reeves,
MD started the program in 2013. We also
continue to train International Fellows
throughout the world. Our first Fellow in
pediatric neurosurgery graduated in 2010
and is currently working at the Barrow
Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. Only 22
such Fellowships exist in the US and only
40% of those match a Fellow each year.
We review and participate in the clinical
in-service education programs and assure
the delivery of quality pediatric clinical services, as appropriate and feasible.
This results in our providing bi-monthly
conferences to the ICU Fellows, semi-annual trauma conferences, and bi-annual
lectures to the ancillary and nursing personnel in the IMU and ICU, lectures to
the Residents in pediatrics, and frequent
presentations at Grand Rounds and Morbidity and Mortality Conference. We also
participate in undergraduate, graduate
and post-graduate education programs.
We have been responsible for educational conferences including Pediatrics,
the Trauma Division, and the Pediatric ICU Team. Michael Levy continues
our yearly International Outreach Program with visits to pediatric facilities
in Managua, Nicaragua, Lima, Peru,
Kiev, Ukraine, and Mbarara, Uganda,
in the past years. Over the past two

The Division has developed Educational
Skull Base Dissection Laboratories for
Resident Education in surgical anatomy
and approaches. We have worked with
Johnson and Johnson Medical to develop
educational materials regarding the use
of hemostatic agents during neurosurgical procedures.
RESEARCH AND FUNDING
Revolutionary surgical techniques and
technologically advanced approaches
remain a primary pursuit of the Neurosurgical Team. New technology in
neurosurgery includes the continued
development of novel Robotic and
three-dimensional endoscopes, High
Definition 3D monitors for intra-operative use, and the potential uses of
intra-operative CT imaging in 2013. We
continue to work with our partner companies to advance closer to the reality
of true stereoscopic endoscopes (Hans
Hoag, PhD–Endactive technologies; Wei
Su, PhD-IntraVista Medical Systems Inc.,
and Kaiser Medical). We have assisted in
the development of a 3D displays which
is utilized in our operative setting as a
front projection 3D image. The primary
purpose is for education and allowing
the nursing and anesthesia teams to be
consistently aware of the course of the
surgical intervention.
Current avenues of research also
include the evaluation of cGMP in novel
neuronal stem cell lines, MEG imaging
and neuropsychiatric testing for mild
closed head trauma in adolescents, and
the potential benefits of Neuronal and
Mesenchymal based stem cells for treatment of stroke.

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES
INPATIENT/OUTPATIENT
The Division is the only comprehensive orthopedic group in San Diego
and Imperial counties with specialists
who practice full time pediatric orthopedics. By devoting their entire careers
to the care of children, these specialists
can provide individualized assessment,
early diagnosis, and appropriate treatment for all pediatric and adolescent
orthopedic problems, including: fracture
care (casting and/or operative fixation);
spine abnormalities (scoliosis, kyphosis
and spondylolisthesis); foot deformities
(Ponseti casting, tarsal coalition, toeing
in, clubfoot, flatfeet); hip disorders (hip
dysplasia and dislocation, Legg-CalvePerthes disease); sports medicine (knee
and shoulder arthroscopy) brachial
plexus palsy; and cerebral palsy (gait
enhancement).
The Division also works with RCHSD to
provide advanced biomechanical analysis
through the Motion Analysis Laboratory
and low dose pediatric imaging services.
RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
The orthopedic research program at
RCHSD is designed to keep the Division
at the forefront of advances in orthopedic
treatment in order to share best practices
and new discoveries within the field. The
program has attracted external grants
from industry, professional organizations
and federal sources, as well as philanthropic funding. In 2012, the department
members contributed to 51 scientific
presentations at national and international meetings (Annual Meetings of the
36
American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, Pediatric Orthopedic Society of
North America, Scoliosis Research Society, Orthopedic Research Society, and the
International Meeting on Advanced Spinal Techniques).
In addition to the Division’s ten
attending orthopedic surgeons, orthopedic research at RCHSD is conducted
and carried out by many other physicians, research support staff, and trainees.
Pediatric orthopedic fellows are actively
involved in research during their fellowship training year. International fellows as
well as residents from UCSD, the U.S. Navy
and U.S. Air Force regularly participate in
one or more research projects during their
rotations. Each year, the Division hosts a
resident from the UCSD orthopedic residency program for training in orthopedic
research. The Orthopedic Division also
has internal resources for conducting
sophisticated statistical analyses, which
lends enhanced scientific validity and
detailed data analysis to its research studies. The Division employs administrative
support for budgeting, contracting and
project management.
To further its research goals in clinical, biomechanical, and in vivo research
methodologies, the Orthopedic Division
has established specific synergistic centers of research:
• The Center for Spinal Deformities
Research
• TheCenterforPediatricandAdolescent Sports Medicine Research
• TheCenterforHipResearch
• The Orthopedic Biomechanics
Research Center
• The Motion Analysis Laboratory/
Center for Human Performance
The Center for Spinal Deformities
works with a very active clinical spine
service under the supervision of Dr. Peter
Newton. With the help of industry grants
and participation in the multi-center
international spinal deformity Harms
Study Group, the center has added three
full-time research staff and one research
nurse. The center’s research has primarily focused on identifying the optimal
treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients. Currently, all patients
undergoing surgical correction of AIS
are consented to participate in research
and followed for a minimum of five
years. The center collects pre-operative
and post-operative clinical and radiographic data, and performs pulmonary
function tests on each patient. A secure
web-based database allows all sites to
enter and query de-identified patient
data, which includes digital x-rays and
clinical photos. This system has proven to
be successful in advancing knowledge of
scoliosis treatment and help disseminate
treatment information at international
and national meetings, and in peer
reviewed journals. The center has also
launched similar prospective research
studies for Scheuermann’s kyphosis and
scoliosis in patients with Cerebral Palsy,
and plans to continue in vivo research
and its work with the Orthopedic Biomechanics Research Center. It also serves
as a site for a multi-center, NIH funded
study investigating the efficacy of bracing in patients with adolescent idiopathic
scoliosis. All patients who visit the orthopedic department for clinical evaluation
of spinal deformity undergo radiographic
examination in the EOSВ® Imaging booth,
which allows for a fast, biplanar, lowdose, standing x-ray acquisition. These
images are also capable of undergoing 3D
reconstruction for research purposes.
The Center for Pediatric and Adolescent Sports Medicine Research is our
youngest center, established to support
the efforts of the surgeons within the 360
Sports Medicine program at RCHSD.
The research within this center focuses
on specific sports related injuries, as well
as general orthopedic trauma treatment
– which quite often are a result of sporting activity. Projects within this center
have examined the outcome of varying
treatment approaches for skeletal injuries and predictors of treatment failures.
The surgeons in this center are currently
participating in prospective multi-center
studies to develop registries for clavicle
fractures and treatment of osteochondritis
dissecans of the knee. Extensive study into
shoulder injuries in children and adolescents is also a major focus and efforts are
currently underway to validate a subjective shoulder outcome tool specific to this
age group. Efforts to better understand

sports injuries radiographically have also
been undertaken, in collaboration with
pediatric radiologists at this institution.
The efforts of the Center for Hip
Research revolve around the four major
diagnoses encountered by pediatric hip
surgeons; developmental dysplasia of
the hip (DDH), Legg-Calve-Perthes disease (Perthes), slipped capital femoral
epiphysis (SCFE), and femoroacetabular
impingement (FAI). Research into these
four conditions attempts to better understand the evolution of the conditions,
stages of disease, and the ideal treatment
outcomes. Our department is participating in a multi-center prospective study
evaluating the treatment outcomes for
patients with DDH, as part of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI).
A prospective registry to gather extensive
data on patients with FAI was recently
established and it is anticipated a similar
approach to SCFE patients will be undertaken with the next year. This research
center has also taken advantage of the
opportunity created by the EOSВ® Imaging booth, which allows for standing
radiographic image of the pelvis. Recent
studies have evaluated pelvic parameters
in this natural standing state in scoliosis
patients with no hip disease as well as
patients with symptomatic hip disease.
Future work will explore the capabilities
of the system for creating 3D reconstructions of the pelvis and femur.
TheOrthopedicBiomechanicsResearch
Center(OBRC),foundedin1998andled
by Dr. Peter Newton under the direction
of Diana Glaser, PhD, applies advanced
engineering tools and methods to evaluate
techniques and instrumentation used to
correct orthopedic problems and deformities. The lab has received several grants to
evaluate current spinal devices and a new
technique for fusionless scoliosis surgery.
These studies, along with research presentations and publications, have made the lab
a world-recognized facility in this area of
orthopedic research. The lab has also made
significant progress toward understanding
the biomechanical effects of various surgical techniques for stabilizing adolescent
fractures of the humerus, femur and tibia,
and in exploring the biomechanical effects
of pediatric hip deformity.
These cumulative research efforts have
been accomplished by pairing orthopedic surgeons and biomedical engineers
with orthopedic residents and fellows.
Engineering interns and medical students are also recruited to help with each
project. This multi-layered approach has
yielded significant success with prolific
publications appearing in Spine, the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Clinical
Orthopaedics and Related Research, the
American Journal of Sports Medicine,
the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Medicine and Science in Sports and
Exercise, the Journal of Foot and Ankle
Surgery, Arthroscopy and the Journal of
AppliedBiomechanics.
The Motion Analysis Laboratory
(MAL) has been utilizing and developing
technological resources for the advanced
diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic
problems since 1974. Led by Dr. Henry
Chambers, the internationally recognized MAL specializes in the diagnosis
and treatment of orthopedic dysfunction
in cerebral palsy. The MAL uses modern
computer technology and high-speed
digital cameras to obtain detailed reports
of how patients move while walking
compared to age-related data of normal
walkingpatterns.Bystudyingthedifferences, an orthopedic surgeon can develop
an individualized treatment plan, with
recommendations for orthoses, physical
therapy or surgery, if necessary.
The Center for Human Performance
(CHP) was established by Arnel Aguinaldo, MA in 2001. Utilizing MAL
technology, the center’s main objectives
are studying and providing feedback on
athletic performance and injury prevention in such areas as pitching, golf swing,
running, and archery for children, adults
and athletes of all ages and levels of competition. The MAL and CHP continue to
be at the forefront in the field of human
motion study.

otolaryngologic disorders, including: congenital and acquired
hearing loss in children; airway problems ranging from
obstructive sleep apnea to complicated diseases of the laryngeal
and tracheal airway requiring cutting edge surgical intervention
and reconstruction; complications of acute sinusitis that involve
the eye and brain; chronic sinusitis problems in children
including those with cystic fibrosis; congenital abnormalities of
the face and neck, including complex vascular malformations;
congenital and acquired thyroid disease; and a host of
communication, speech and voice disorders. The Division also
leads a variety of interdisciplinary teams, including the Pediatric
Airway and Aerodigestive Team, Cochlear Evaluation and
Implementation Team, and Voice Disorders in Children and
Thyroid Tumor Board.
All of the physicians in the Division are fellowship trained
in pediatric otolaryngology, which requires completion of an
otolaryngology residency, plus a minimum of one additional
year of specialty training. This advanced training is focused
completely on the unique diagnostic and treatment issues in
children from birth to 19 years of age.
The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology has been a
source of leadership and innovation for over 30 years. With its
commitment to ongoing patient care, physician education and

TEACHING ACTIVITIES
Superimposed on clinical care is the
Division of acute sinusitis at RCHSDFAPA) S two fellows in our clinical
Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship program. Since 1990, we have graduated 29
fully-trained pediatric otolaryngologists
who have gone on to productive careers
in academic institutions throughout the
United States. In addition, the Division is
responsible for educating ENT residents
from the UCSD and the Naval Medical
Center San Diego programs in pediatric otolaryngology. Pediatric residents,
family medicine residents and medical
students and nurse practitioner students
also rotate through the clinic and receive
didactic lectures from our staff as part
of their pediatric specialty education
program. The Division actively participates in community outreach programs
through involvement with the health
professionals mentor program at UCSD
and through its involvement with the
otology and hearing clinic for San Diego
City Schools. Physicians from around the
world enjoy the opportunity for observational preceptorships with physicians
from Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Chile, Venezuela, Vietnam and Iraq having spent
time at RCHSD in recent years. Throughout the year, members of the Division
give Grand Rounds lectures and CME
programs to community-based physicians in multiple specialties to ensure
state-of-the-art practice for primary care
physicians.
On a national level, the Division provides extensive update meetings drawing
primary care physicians from around the
country to review management issues for
a wide range of pediatric ENT problems.
In addition, members of the department
give Instructional Courses each year
at the American Academy of Otolaryngology Annual and at the American
Academy of Pediatrics national meetings.
In 1992, the Division created International Endoscopy Days at RCHSD, a
world class meeting for pediatric otolaryngologists from around the world. The
otolaryngologists participate in a day of
live operative endoscopy followed by
lectures, panels and open discussion on
cutting-edge management of pediatric airway abnormalities. In April 2012
over 125 physicians from around the
world attended the 15th International
Endoscopy day at RCHSD. Four very
challenging live airway endoscopy cases
were performed by our group, observed
by the attendees and spirited discussion,
debate and audience interaction followed.

The Cochlear Implant
Program at RCHSD
The Cochlear Implant (CI) team at
RCHSD began in 2004 under the directorship of Daniela Carvalho, MD. This
program has been critical in providing
hearing restoration for children with
profound hearing loss that do not benefit
from hearing aids. This mode of hearing
rehabilitation permits these children to
enter into the mainstream community
and achieve their full educational and
communicative potential. Our multidisciplinary team includes hearing and speech
specialists, an auditory verbal therapist,
developmental psychologists and social
workers from RCHSD. The program has
grown steadily and there are more than
450 CI patients followed by our group
and has been a dramatic success as shown
by the growth and accomplishment of the
team listed below.

The Pathology Division is responsible for all anatomic and
clinical pathology diagnostic services and the educational
programs in pediatric pathology for medical students, residents,
and fellows. Additionally, the pathology staff contributes to and
supports an array of activities including professional societies,
public service agencies, and media productions. The pathologists
are actively engaged in collaborative research occurring within
the institution, at the University of California, San Diego (UC
San Diego) School of Medicine, and with investigators from
other institutions around the country. The pathologists are
also intimately involved in the day-to-day administrative
management of the laboratories.

Surgery &
Trauma
The Division of Pediatric Surgery at Rady Children’s Specialists
of San Diego (RCSSD) provides care to infants, children and
adolescents with surgical diagnoses. These diagnoses include
congenital anomalies, abdominal and thoracic surgical diseases,
solid tumors, organ transplantation and trauma. The Division
provides surgical operative care for approximately 3,000 patients
a year. The Division provides hospital and office consultations
and prenatal consultations for congenital disorders. All members
of our board are certified in Pediatric and General Surgery.
The Division of Pediatric Surgery continues to be a leader in
minimally invasive procedures for children. Greater than ninetyeight percent of appendectomies are performed laparoscopically.
Dr. Timothy J. Fairbanks, has continued to emphasize single
site and minimally invasive procedures which result in essentially
scarless operations. Advanced minimally invasive procedures
are routinely performed in the chest and abdominal cavities on
patients of all sizes. Difficult surgical procedures such as partial
splenectomies, adrenalectomies and ovarian procedures can
be performed with the benefits of less scarring, less pain and
quicker return to full activities. Dr. Fairbanks has also helped
organize the Division’s efforts to initiate a Pediatric Surgical
fellowship training program. He is the Program Director for the
training program.

Children Trauma Advisory Committee for California.
Dr. Karen Kling has been instrumental in designing, developing
and implementing surgical applications for EPIC, the electronic
health record at RCHSD.
Dr. Stephen Bickler is an international expert in establishing
pediatric surgical care in developing nations. He is a leader for the
multi-center NIH grant supporting these efforts.
Dr. Julia Grabowski joined the Division in September 2012. She
is a skilled pediatric surgeon and is collaborating with Dr. Chiang on
an EPIC based research projects regarding appendicitis & regarding
ovarian cysts. She is the Assistant Training Program Director.
Dr. Mary Hilfiker is the Trauma Medical Director & Division
Director.
RCHSD is the only American College of Surgeons nationally
designated Level 1 pediatric trauma center in
San Diego and Imperial counties. The hospital
and division also receive injured children
from the surrounding areas including
Riverside County.
The trauma center cares for over
1000 patients a year who have been
designated as trauma patients.
Since the inception of the trauma
system sin San Diego in 1984, the
trauma service at RCHSD has cared
for approximately 30,000 children.
The trauma service is nationally
recognized for disaster preparedness
and planning and is working with the
CDC on disaster plans.

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES
INPATIENT/OUTPATIENT
Trauma
The top three causes of serious injury to
children seen in San Diego are falls, motor vehicle crashes and pedestrian versus
motor vehicle injuries.
In addition to clinical care, the trauma
service members work to help families
prevent injuries by sharing current trends
via the RCHSD website, participating
in media events and distributing educational materials such as one-page information sheets on a variety of injury prevention topics. Areas of special concern
and focus for the past few years include
of pedestrians struck by motor vehicles,
drowning and children injured by falling
televisions.
The trauma center was re-certified by
the American College of Surgeons as a
Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center in 2012.
Pediatric Surgery
The Division work closely with the oncologists in the care of children with cancer
and with the neonatologists and perinatologists in the care of newborns
with congenital anomalies.
Division members are always available
to provide immediate care for trauma patients and any urgent or emergent surgical problems. They are also involved in
teaching the surgical residents, pediatric
residents, medical students and nurses.
We are actively involved in establishing
an ACGME accredited pediatric surgery
training program. In addition, general
surgery residents from UCSD and The
Naval Medical center are joining us to
learn pediatric surgery & trauma.
RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
Dr. Bickler does research involving disease patterns in developed and developing countries.
The Trauma Service conducts multiple epidemiologic studies and is actively
involved in research projects with the
Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine
Fellows. These include research regarding
the value of repeat imaging for head injuries, frequency of repeat imaging and use
72
of hypertonic saline in concussion and
complications of hypertonic saline use.
TEACHING ACTIVITIES
The Division of Pediatric Surgery has
initiated a Pediatric Surgery fellowship
training program through the UCSD
Graduate Medical Education office. This
program has begun training our first fellow, Katherine P. Davenport, MD. The
training program is in the process of obtaining ACGME approval and hopes to
train one fellow per year. The process of
becoming a Pediatric Surgeon is one of
the most rigorous in all of medical training. We look forward to training future
pediatric surgeons.
The educational program within the
Division of Pediatric Surgery has been
enhanced over the last few years. General
Surgery Residents from both the UCSD
and Navy General Surgery departments
rotate on service for a full year. There is
a regular basic science conference weekly. The general surgery service has at
least one case conference per week and
occasionally more. Multidisciplinary
conferences with specialties such as Neonatology, Pathology and Radiology now
occur and allow organized communication about mutual patients. Dr. Nicholas
Saenz is a site clerkship mentor for 3rd
year medical students.
All of the Surgery Division members
participate in teaching residents and
students from UCSD in addition to providing education for nursing and staff at
RCHSD. All are members of RCSSD with
faculty appointments at UCSD.
All of the Surgery Division members
are trauma surgeons also and involved
in ongoing education and performance
improvement. They also collaborate with
adult trauma centers in San Diego and the
County of San Diego Emergency Medical
Services in these endeavors.
Dr. Stephen Bickler is a consultant for
the World Health Organization and travels internationally to teach and care for
children with surgical disorders.

Pediatric Urology
The Division of Pediatric Urology focuses on all aspects of
genitourinary disorders encountered in children from birth
through young adulthood. These varied conditions encompass
treatment with both medical and surgical regimens.
The Division has been honored since 2009 by being ranked
in Pediatric Urology care by U.S. News & World Report’s
“America’s Best Children’s Hospital.” Its most recent ranking in
2013 was #10 and continues to be the highest ranked program
in the state of California; thus, reinforcing the world class care
our patients are receiving at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego
(RCHSD) in conjunction with Rady Children’s Specialists of San
Diego (RCSSD).

Dr. Chiang is leading the way for clinical research in our Division. As part of
our commitment to investigating cutting
edge therapeutics and improving the
quality of care for our patients, we are
actively involved in several clinical trials.
By partnering with the biomedical industry, we are investigating novel forms of
medications for children with neurogenic
bladder. Two clinical trials involving
new medical therapy to treat neurogenic
detrusor overactivity in children performing intermittent catheterization
were completed in 2013. He served as the
principal Investigator in a study entitled,

CLINICAL ACTIVITIES
INPATIENT/OUTPATIENT
Over 9,000 patient visits per year were
conducted in the Pediatric Urology
Clinic in its main office on the campus of
RCHSD and at its satellite clinics in Encinitas, Escondido, North County Coastal
and Murrieta during 2011-2013. We have
expanded our multi-disciplinary clinics
besides the Spinal Defects Clinic which
has been in existent for many years. In
addition, we have created a Stone Clinic
with our Nephrology colleagues which
focus on the medical and surgical management of urinary stone disease. During
the same time frame, over 3,000 surgical
procedures per year were performed.

Also, Dr. Chiang received UCSD Academic Senate Research Grant of $10,000
for basic science project involving the
development of minimally invasive micturition animal model. He also received
additional grant funding of $10,000 from
RCSSD Physician’s Development Fund
for research relating to strategic collaboration project for inquiry of pediatric
electronic health information systems.
Dr. Marietti in conjunction with
Dr. Holmes are creating and designing
a database to retrospectively and prospectively categorize patients who have
vesicoureteral reflux. Specifically, they
hope to address issues concerning surgical outcomes and quality indicators in the
treatment of this disease.
