About Dr. Phillips


Dr. Alistair Phillips, MD is a board certified congenital heart surgeon, thoracic surgery and surgery at Cleveland Clinic specializing in complex congenital heart surgery including neonatal heart surgery, adult congenital heart surgery and congenital heart failure. My previous positions have given me extensive experience in all aspects of congenital heart surgery from neonatal surgery to adults with congenital heart disease including mechanical support, ECMO and heart transplantation. I have operated on nearly 5000 patients all over the world and I am honored to have been able to help most of them. It is a great privilege to be able to care for patients with congenital heart disease, and their families.
