Dr D’Orsogna is a graduate of University of Western Australian, and has trained in paediatric cardiology in North America before returning to Western Australia.

He is an experienced paediatric and fetal cardiologist who established the first Fetal Cardiology Service in Western Australia at King Edward Memorial Hospital in 1996.

Luigi has expertise on all facets of fetal cardiology with a particular interest in fetal cardiac arrhythmias and structural congenital cardiac disease. He is pleased to be associated with Western Ultrasound for Women, and is available to assess any pregnant women with suspected fetal cardiac anomalies including fetal cardiac arrhythmia with fetal echocardiography. This includes the assessment of pregnant women who are at risk for fetal cardiac abnormalities such as increased nuchal thickening on first trimester, the fetus with suspected chromosomal anomaly or significant extra-cardiac abnormality, family history of congenital heart disease, maternal auto-immune disease such as SLE or Sjogren’s disease, and maternal exposure to teratogens such as alcohol, anti-convulsant medication or lithium.
