Dr. Martina Brueckner, MD
PositionProfessor of Pediatrics (Cardiology)
Dr. Brueckner's clinical focus is on patients with genetic causes of congenital heart disease. It has become increasingly apparent that a large portion of cardiovascular disease in children and adolescents has as its underlying etiology a genetic defect. Frequently, patients with a genetically caused cardiovascular defect have involvement of other systems. These patients require care from multiple subspecialists. This multi-specialty care is sometimes difficult to coordinate, and attending many separate clinics can be time consuming for the patients and their families. The Children's Hospital at Yale-New Haven created a unique joint genetics-cardiology clinic that provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and follow-up care for patients with genetic-cardiovascular disease. Dr. Brueckner has been a staff cardiologist since completing her fellowship at Yale in 1990.
