Jeffery Meadows, MD

Pediatric cardiologist

Dr. Jeffery Meadows is a pediatric cardiologist at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital who specializes in treating complex heart disease with interventional cardiac catheterization procedures. He treats infants and children as well as adults who have had heart conditions since birth. In the Pediatric Heart Center, he also is director of the Pediatric and Cardiopulmonary Congenital Exercise Laboratory, which tests heart and pulmonary function before, during and after exercise. Meadows treats pediatric heart conditions that exist at birth as well as conditions that develop later. His expertise includes atrial and ventricular septal defect closure, balloon angioplasty and valvuloplasty collateral vessel closure, endovascular stent placement, invasive physiologic assessment and angiography, and percutaneous pulmonary valve placement.

In his research, Meadows focuses on pediatric interventional cardiology and quantitative physiologic assessment of ventricular and vascular function, particularly in patients with complex single ventricle anatomy. Meadows is an associate professor in Pediatric Cardiology at UCSF. He earned a medical degree at Johns Hopkins University and completed an internship and residency in pediatric internal medicine and fellowships in pediatric cardiology and pediatric interventional cardiology at Children's Hospital in Boston.
