Fontan Survivors Clinic

Dr. Alshawabkeh Fontan survivors are individuals who have successfully undergone the Fontan procedure and are living with the modified circulatory system resulting from the surgery. They require lifelong medical follow-up and care to monitor their heart function, manage any complications that may arise, and ensure optimal health.

Fontan survivors may face certain challenges and considerations due to their unique heart anatomy and altered circulation. These can include issues such as exercise limitations, risk of arrhythmias, heart failure, or other long-term complications.

However, advancements in surgical techniques and medical management have improved outcomes for Fontan survivors, allowing many individuals to lead active and fulfilling lives.
