    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Emilio Quezada is a pediatric cardiologist who specializes in prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart disease with fetal echocardiography. His main focus is outpatient evaluation and and treatment for pediatric patients with heart disease in the Salinas and Monterey area.

    Quezada counsels parents when congenital heart disease is detected during a pregnancy. His goal is empowering families to navigate the challenges of a new diagnosis by providing compassionate and respectful care.

    Quezada's research examines the aorta in women with Turner syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes multiple medical issues, often including heart defects. He is co-director of the Healthy Heart Project of the Turner Syndrome Society of the United States. Since 2021, he directs the Genetic Aortopathy clinic at Mission Bay, which evaluates and manages patients with genetic conditions that affect the aorta.

    Quezada earned his medical degree from Francisco Marroquín University in Guatemala. He completed a residency in pediatrics at the University of South Florida, followed by a fellowship in pediatric cardiology at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). He completed a year of advanced training in fetal cardiology and noninvasive cardiac imaging at OHSU and UCSF.

    Quezada is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and member of the Fetal Heart Society, and American Society of Echocardiography.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
