Dr. VanLoozen enjoys all aspects of pediatric cardiology, however his passion involves treating complex congenital heart disease using minimally invasive, transcatheter techniques. This includes closing heart defects, stent placement or ballooning of stenotic lesions/valves and transcatheter valve replacement.
