"I was drawn to pediatric cardiac surgery by the opportunity to make a very real difference in the lives of children with difficult medical problems. My greatest reward is helping these children live healthy, happy lives. We are privileged to have access to cutting-edge medical technology in this country. I work every day to apply this technology in ways that improve the safety and quality of life of my patients."

Dr. Michael McMullan, you're an amazing surgeon! If it weren't for you I probably wouldn't be here today! You fixed up my heart! I finally graduated high school and now I'm doing an Insanity workout. It's one of the hardest workouts! Thanks to you my heart doesn't skip beats anymore! I'm focusing on exercising my heart and eating healthy! I'm suppose to get another surgery in a year or so and I'm hoping I get you to fix it up again! I feel a lot better and you can definitely tell a difference! Thanks to you, you saved my life and now I can live a full and happy life :)

Dr. McMullan happened to be working the day our son Kyle received his new heart. We will be forever grateful that he was part of our son's gift of life. Thank you for following us through a very tough journey he is 16 now and doing amazing.

Dr.McMullan is a wonderful surgeon as well as being wonderful with our family. He can really put your mind at ease as a parent, and that is a tough thing to do. Thank you Dr. McMullan.
MaribelBurien,WA02.11.11
Two hours after my son was born a Doctor said that only 1% with the same heart condition survive but once we were in children's Dr. McMullan came to the room and explain my son condition and the steps to fix my baby's heart. Thanks to this Dr. I had a reason to look forward in life. My son is now 3 years old and doing just great.

Research Description

The focus of our research is developing improved mechanical extracorporeal life support systems (ECLS). Combined with optimized clinical management protocols, improved ECLS circuit designs provide increased clinical flexibility and patient safety. Current projects include system enhancements that enable decreased anticoagulation, reduced circuit size, and elimination of unnecessary components. Additionally, we are focusing on alternative methods of care provider education to increase quality assurance.

Research Focus Area

Quality Improvement, Congenital Cardiac Surgery Outcomes
