  • MD, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

During medicine training, Dr. Fisher became exposed to congenital heart patients and pursued specialized training in this field, including both pediatric and adult cardiology with a focus on “grown up heart disease” in children.

Dr. Fisher practiced with a large cardiology group as a subspecialist in Adult congenital heart care, pulmonary hypertension, and pregnancy associated heart diseases before joining the University of Maryland Faculty in January 2011.

Clinical Speciality:

  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease
  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Dr. Fisher’s focus is working with surgery, pediatric, imaging, and genetics colleagues to build the best possible adult congenital heart center, advance research in this field and in pulmonary hypertension in congenital heart disease, and improve provider education to expand access for this growing patient group.

Dr. Fisher advocates multidisciplinary care to improve recommendations to patients with complex conditions. Her endeavors include a pediatric/adult/cardiac surgical weekly conference to discuss complex congenital cases and imaging, close collaboration with the cardiac transplantation team, and shared research interests and clinical care with the pulmonary hypertension group. In addition, a cardiogenetics program facilitates diagnosis and family screening of heritable cardiovascular conditions such as Marfan's syndrome, aortic aneurysm and dissection, Ehlers Danlos syndrome, 22Q deletion syndromes, Noonan's syndrome, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. In addition, Dr. Fisher heads an aortic disease center for multispecialty vascular and cardiac care of dissection and aneurysm patients.
