Pediatric cardiology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions in children, including congenital heart defects, heart murmurs, and arrhythmias. Our pediatric cardiology specialists provide compassionate care and advanced treatments that help improve the heart health of children, enhance their quality of life, and reduce the risk of complications.

Before your child’s appointment with our pediatric cardiology specialists, we may ask you to prepare by gathering any medical records or test results related to your child’s heart health. We may also ask you to bring a list of any medications your child is currently taking. Depending on your child’s specific condition, our team may provide additional instructions for preparation.

Purpose

The purpose of pediatric cardiology is to diagnose and treat heart conditions in children, from infancy through adolescence. Our team of experts uses the latest diagnostic tools and technologies to evaluate and diagnose heart conditions, and offers a range of treatments, including medication management, interventional procedures, and surgery. Our goal is to improve the heart health of children and provide families with the support they need.

Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and support to children and their families throughout the recovery process.

Pediatric cardiology procedures may vary depending on the specific condition being treated. Our team of experts uses advanced diagnostic tools, such as echocardiograms, electrocardiograms (ECGs), and cardiac catheterization, to evaluate heart health and diagnose heart conditions. Depending on the diagnosis, we may recommend medications, interventional procedures, or surgery.
