Dr. Chen is the Co-Director of the Cardiac Center and holds the Mortimer J. Buckley Jr. MD Endowed Chair in Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Dr. Chen graduated from Yale University in 1990 and Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons in 1994. He completed General Surgery Residency and Cardiothoracic Surgery Fellowships at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and he then joined the faculty there. From 2008-2013, he served as Chief of Pediatric Cardiovascular Services and the David Wallace-Starr Foundation Professor at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, as well as Surgical Director of the Pediatric Heart Transplant Program at the Columbia University campus. Dr. Chen served as the Chief of Congenital Cardiac Surgery, Co-Director of the Heart Center, Professor of Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and holder of the Sam and Althea Stroum Endowed Chair in Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery.
His clinical research has primarily been directed toward surgical issues in complex congenital heart care and cardiac transplantation (focusing on advances with operative techniques, outcomes research and transplantation for congenital heart disease), with a particular emphasis on the development of mechanical ventricular assist devices for children, as well as stem-cell based valved conduits for pediatric application.
Dr. Chen holds important leadership positions in cardiac surgery organizations and currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. Dr. Chen has an interest in extending excellent cardiovascular care to the developing world and he has led humanitarian trips to Cambodia, Senegal, China, India and Brazil over the past decade under the aegis of several volunteer organizations.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
