Einzig re-joins WVU Pediatric staff

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Stanley Einzig, M.D., Ph.D., an internationally known expert in pediatric cardiology, recently re-joined WVU’s Department of Pediatrics. Einzig had previously served as section chief in pediatric cardiology at WVU from 1990-2001.

“I left WVU a few years ago to accept a position as director of the pediatric and fetal echocardiography laboratory at Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark/Beth Israel Medical Center and associate staff at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia,” Einzig said. “But when Larry Rhodes, who heads the pediatric heart center at WVU, was appointed, he asked me to come back.

“When you look at the quality of the cardiac program at Children’s Hospital, coupled with the small-town feel of Morgantown and the people here, it was an easy decision to make.”

Einzig manages and treats children with structural heart disease, heart failure, and cardiomyopathy, and uses non-invasive ultrasound studies that provide detailed, real-time images of the heart as part of his treatment plan.

Einzig is listed in Guide to America’s Top Cardiologists, a publication of the Consumer’s Research Council of America, from 2006-2008. He received his medical degree from University of California at Los Angeles Medical School and received specialty training in pediatrics and pediatric cardiology at the University of Minnesota. Also, he earned his doctorate in physiology from the University of Minnesota. An avid teacher and researcher, he is the author of numerous journal articles and book chapters.
