What Sets Us Apart

Cardiac experts at NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital are experienced in diagnosing and treating babies and children who have all types of congenital heart defects, including some of the most complex and rare conditions.

From the moment our specialists make a diagnosis—while a child is in the womb, just after birth, or later in childhood—our comprehensive team begins developing a treatment plan for your child and family. 

Our Pediatric and Congenital Heart Program includes cardiologists, heart surgeons, obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, anesthesiologists, intensive care specialists, nurse practitioners, nurses, and social workers who work together with one goal: taking care of children with congenital heart defects.

Our team has specialized training and credentials in caring for infants with congenital heart defects. Our nurse practitioners play a pivotal role in coordinating treatment, most notably in the Congenital Cardiovascular Care Unit, when babies to young adults with heart defects require inpatient care. No matter which treatment your child needs, our team works to provide the best care possible in an environment that is safe and comfortable for the entire family.

Our experts are also committed to caring for children with congenital heart defects as they grow into adulthood.

Treatment at NYU Langone

After diagnosis, the pediatric cardiac care team at NYU Langone first determines whether a child with a congenital heart defect needs medication, surgery, or another treatment for the condition.
