Joshua Kanter, MD, is Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Children’s National Health System and assistant professor of Pediatrics at the George Washington University Medical Center. He received his medical degree and pediatrics training from the State University of New York, Health Science Center at Syracuse and completed fellowship training in pediatric cardiology and interventional pediatric cardiology at the New York Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center.
Dr. Kanter specializes in diagnostic and interventional pediatric cardiac catheterization for the treatment of congenital heart disease. He has extensive experience implanting the Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve and is an expert in the device closure of atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, and patent ductus arteriosus. He is an investigator in a number of national multi-center research studies to examine new devices and to track clinical outcomes.
He serves on several national committees including the American College of Cardiology, National Cardiovascular Data Registry, IMPACT™ Registry Implementation Group, and the American College of Cardiology Annual Scientific Session Program Committee.
Dr. Kanter is board-certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Cardiology and is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. He has published extensively on a range of topics within the field of pediatric cardiology.
