Arterial switch operation at 1 week old
Our baby Alfie was born with transposition of the great arteries, and had an arterial switch at 1 week old. He had several complications post surgery and spent 3 weeks in ICU, had 4 procedures, and spent a total of 6 weeks in total in the RCH. The staff, nurses, and doctors were incredible, and made a very difficult time bearable. Alfie is now doing very well and is home with his parents, and we’re incredibly grateful for the RCH.
