Bryan G. Maxwell, MD, MPH is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore. He is a full-time clinician with a particular interest in the care of adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). His research interests center on the outcomes of cardiac surgery, noncardiac surgery, and pregnancy in ACHD patients, as well as on ways to study and improve the structure and performance of health systems in dealing with the complex challenges posed by the ACHD patients over their whole lifespan, from fragile neonates to middle-aged or elderly adults living with the long-term sequelae of corrective or palliative surgery. His research also addresses the public health and resource utilization implications of complex cardiac surgical care, including the population-level effects of heart and lung transplantation, the use of mechanical circulatory support, and the perioperative care of patients with severe pulmonary hypertension.
Dr. DiNardo graduated from Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Medical School (with honors). He completed his anesthesia residency and fellowship in Cardiac Anesthesia at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. He joined the faculty at Boston Children’s Hospital in 1999. He currently serves as the Chief of the Division of Cardiac Anesthesia. He spends approximately one third of this clinical time as an Attending in the Cardiac ICU.
