Meet the Physician

Dr. Steven Bibevski comes to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital from the University of Michigan, where he completed fellowships in both adult and pediatric cardiac surgery. His training at one of the busiest congenital heart programs in the nation, with more than 900 procedures annually, afforded him extensive experience in the treatment of all complex forms of congenital heart disease, with an emphasis on hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Dr. Bibevski also completed a visiting fellowship at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, the largest pediatric heart center in the southern hemisphere.

Both pediatric fellowships provided experience in Extracorporeal Life Support, post-operative intensive care unit management, heart transplantation and all aspects of managing patients with adult congenital heart disease. Dr. Bibevski’s clinical interest is in complex congenital heart defect repair, including single-ventricle physiology, transposition of the great vessels and atrio-ventricular canal defects.

Dr. Bibevski also has a strong research background. He obtained his PhD in cardiovascular physiology from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where he conducted research in the field of autonomic neural control of the cardiovascular system in heart failure.
