We diagnose congenital heart defects and acquired heart disease in infants, children, and adolescents using techniques such as echocardiograms, cardiac catheterizations, stress treadmill exercise testing, and electrophysiology studies.
Through our Pediatric Heart Failure and Transplant Program, we provide the most advanced care for children who have heart failure, including ventricular assist device therapy and heart pumps that are used in preparation for heart transplant.
In addition to cardiac catheterization, our cardiologists use advanced cardiac imaging techniques, such as three-dimensional echocardiography and cardiac MRI, to diagnose all forms of complex congenital heart disease. When surgical treatment is required, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital pediatric cardiologists work collaboratively with our cardiothoracic surgeons and nurse practitioners to accurately define the diagnosis and care for your child during and after surgery.
Our pediatric cardiologists are also actively involved in research aimed at preventing both congenital and acquired heart disease in children.
