 Overview
Dr. George M. Alfieris, nationally recognized pediatric cardiac surgeon, is Director of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at the Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong and Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Dr. Alfieris has achieved the highest cardiac surgery survival rate in New York State for the most complex congenital heart diseases.

Dr. Alfieris is the only pediatric cardiac surgeon in the region and stresses a team approach to the care of infants and children.

Dr. Alfieris works closely with the Golisano Children's Heart Center cardiologists, intensive care specialists, anesthesiologists, surgical nurse practitioners, child life specialists, patient care coordinators, nurses and a group of allied professionals to care for the patients and their families.

Patients are cared for in a new 12-bed state of the art pediatric cardiac intensive care unit. On the floor above, there is a special Ronald McDonald House to accommodate parents of children requiring intensive care. Special attention is given to families during this stressful time of surgery, and every effort is made to have parents be with their child as much as possible during the hospital stay.
