Eyal Sagiv, MD, PhD


  • Children's Title: Attending Physician
  • Academic Title: Assistant Professor, Pediatrics
  • On Staff Since: October 2019
"I was interested in science and medicine since a young age and there was no hesitation in going to med school. Choosing pediatrics came later through clinical rotations, as I enjoyed working with children, being allowed to participate in their growth and development and allowed into their family units. I hope I conduct my care with values of kindness and humanism put forward. Working at our Heart Center at SCH is a unique opportunity to serve families and patients from a large geographic area, backgrounds and values, that teaches me a lot about myself as a physician. The hospital as a whole is incredibly collegial with a large team truly dedicated to serving our patients and improving care. I am an advocate for diversity and LGBTQA rights in health care and dedicated to fostering supportive and healthy learning environment to pediatric trainees. In my free time, I am interested in reading, learning languages, hiking, and biking."

    Clinical Interests

    My clinical interest is mostly in inpatient cardiology, focusing on the care of infants and children around complex surgeries for congenital heart disease. I am also studying and leading the treatment of children hospitalized for immune conditions affecting the heart such as Kawasaki disease, COVID19- related MIS-C or vaccine-associated myocarditis. Congenital heart disease, heart disease in medically complex children, congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries, Kawasaki disease and all common childhood cardiology concerns (heart murmurs, chest pain, dizziness and fainting).

    Research Description

    As my main interest and time are invested in the care of children and infants admitted to the hospital for cardiac medical or surgical needs, my research is all dedicated to improve our care in a holistic approach that attends to their nutritional, lungs and kidney health, to developmental outcomes and parents' comfort and understanding of their medical needs. We hope to improve long-term outcomes of infants born with complex congenital heart disease and medical needs and shorten the length of hospital stay.
