About Andrew D Pitkin
Hi my name is Dr. Andrew Pitkin and I work with the Congenital Heart Center here at UF Health. I earned my Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from the University of London. I completed many residency programs in the United Kingdom including Internal Medicine and Critical Care at London Chest Hospital and Cardiology, Pulmonology, and Internal Medicine at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. I also completed an Anesthesiology residency at Southampton General Hospital.
I spend most of my time on clinical assignments focused on my area of subspecialty training as a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist with a special emphasis on caring for newborns and children with cardiac anomalies. As a pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist my patients are often less than three pounds and have life threatening hemodynamic and pulmonary derangements. I am honored to work in anesthesiology and contribute to the University of Florida’s Children’s Heart Center as it is among the top 30 in the nation with its surgery program receiving referrals from all over the nation. I am also a member of the echocardiography and pacemaker certified faculty.
