Saar Danon, M.D. is the Medical Director of the Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Cardiac Catheterization at MemorialCare Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach. As an interventional pediatric cardiologist, he specializes in the use of catheters and devices to treat children with congenital heart disease. Dr. Danon performs catheter-based interventions, such as ASD, VSD, and PDA device closure, balloon valvuloplasty, angioplasty, stent placement, as well as trans-catheter valve replacement. He is also active in the diagnosis and treatment of infants, children and young adults with all forms of heart disease.
Dr. Danon earned his medical degree from UCLA School of Medicine in 2000. He subsequently completed his pediatric residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, pediatric cardiology fellowship at UCLA and interventional pediatric cardiology training at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Dr. Danon is dual boarded in both pediatric cardiology and adult congenital heart disease, therefore cares for both children and adults born with congenital heart disease.
Dr. Danon is dedicated to providing exceptional care to his patients. His research focuses on developing new devices and techniques to increase the number of children that can be treated with cardiac catheterization procedures. One of his areas of interest is 3-dimensional modeling of structural heart disease. He is also active in medical mission trips, where he performs trans-catheter interventions, providing care to children in Central America and training the local physicians to care for children with complex congenital heart disease. In 2021 and 2022, he was also recognized as a Top Los Angeles Doctor by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
In his spare time, Dr. Danon enjoys spending time with his family, running, surfing and snowboarding.
