About the Author

John E. Foker

John E. Foker holds the Robert and Sharon Kaster Chair in Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, in, the University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is American Board Certified in General Surgery and Thoracic Surgery.

His clinical and research interests focus on enlisting biological growth signals to induce catch-up growth of hypoplastic and atretic structures so that they reach normal size and allow straight-forward repairs to be made. Principal among these conditions are esophageal atresia and hypoplastic cardiac valves and ventricles. By the use of growth signals to achieve normal-sized structures, good long term (70+ years) appear possible.
