About Andrew D Pitkin

Dr. Pitkin joined us from the University of London where he earned a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree. He 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. He also completed an Anesthesiology residency at Southampton General Hospital.

Dr. Pitkin spends most of his time on clinical assignments focused on his area of subspecialty training as a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist with a special emphasis on caring for newborns and children with cardiac anomalies. The pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist is considered the elite of the elite as patients are often less than three pounds and have life threatening hemodynamic and pulmonary derangements. Dr. Pitkin is a seasoned anesthesiology expert and an important reason why the University of Florida’s Children’s Heart Center is among the top 30 in the nation with its surgery program receiving referrals from all over the nation. Dr. Pitkin is also one of the few echocardiography and pacemaker certified faculty.
