Isaacs says they have 82 employees in Arizona and about 80 people currently using the heart. The device is considered a bridge for people awaiting a transplant or a life saver for those who will not get transplants due to age or medical conditions.“There’s only 2,200 hearts available per year in the United States and the level of donors has been the same for the last twenty years,” Isaacs said.SynCardia is also undergoing FDA clinical trials for the world’s first wearable power supply for their temporary artificial heart. ©2007 The E.W.

Dr. Adelson has been recognized as one of the foremost experts on pediatric head injury , lecturing around the United States and the world. Now he joined Phoenix Children's to expand a program that surpasses the typical model of pediatric care. For some, it's playing a musical instrument. For others, it's painting. But for P. David Adelson, MD, FACS, FAAP, the director of the Hospital's Barrow Neurological Institute and chief of neurosurgery, his passion is a bit atypical. "My hobby is neuroscience," he says. "The heart's a pump, the kidney's a filter – those are all simple functions which are there to support who we are and what we do." But the brain controls it all, he says. "I just looked at the brain and neurosciences as the next frontier; studying something of which I would never get bored." Dr. Adelson has been recognized as one of the foremost experts on pediatric head injury clinical management, lecturing around the United States and the world. He has been published in numerous medical and scientific journals defining "state-of-the art" in the care of children with traumatic brain injuries. The path to Phoenix Children's Hospital Dr. Adelson came to Phoenix in January from Pittsburgh, where he served as the A. Leland Albright Endowed Professor of Neurosurgery/Pediatric Neurosurgery at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Vice Chairman, (Research) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine , one of the most prominent neurosurgical departments in the country.
