David Teitel, M.D.

Chief of pediatric cardiology
Director of the pediatric heart center
Pediatric cardiologist

Dr. David Teitel is chief of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology and medical director of the UCSF Pediatric Heart Center. His patient care activities are centered in the cardiac catheterization laboratory, where he performs diagnostic and interventional procedures on infants, children and adults with congenital heart disease. Teitel, who has a half-day clinic in the Pediatric Heart Center, is an expert in the adaptations of the newborn cardiovascular system to birth and the alterations that occur with congenital heart disease. He co-authored a book on this topic, titled "Neonatal Cardiology," and gives lectures throughout North America and Europe on the heart and circulation in the fetus and child.

In addition to treating patients, Teitel is a member of the Cardiovascular Research Institute. His research focuses on heart and circulatory function in the fetus, newborn and child with congenital heart disease. Teitel received his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Toronto and was a resident in pediatrics at Montreal Children's Hospital, McGill University. He arrived in San Francisco in 1980 for a two-year fellowship in pediatric cardiology, joining the UCSF faculty in 1982 as an assistant professor of pediatrics.
