Michael Bykovsky, MD

1st Year

Dr. Michael Bykhovsky will join the Stanford Adult Congenital Heart Disease fellowship in 2020, looking to further understand the role of multimodal imaging in the long-term care of patients with congenital heart disease. After completing his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Georgia, he developed an interest in cardiology and transitional care during medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Bykhovsky then undertook a combined residency in internal medical and pediatrics at SUNY Stony Brook. Focusing on congenital heart disease, he returned to Georgia to study pediatric cardiology at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. In fellowship, he conducts research on the use of echocardiogram in the longitudinal outcomes of congenital heart disease. Dr. Bykhovsky is inspired to understand and complete the care of CHD children into adulthood and looks forward to joining the outstanding team at Stanford.
