This article is part of Innovative Treatment for Congenital Heart Disease at Every Stage of Life.
Specialists at NYU Langone’s Pediatric Congenital Heart Program specialize in complex neonatal heart surgeries, including the Norwood operation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the arterial switch operation (ASO) for transposition of the great arteries, and the Starnes procedure for Ebstein’s anomaly. Our surgeons perform more than 200 pediatric procedures annually.
Our overall heart surgery survival rates exceed the national averages:
- 94.9 percent for neonates (versus 91.7 percent)
- 99.6 percent for infants up to one year (versus 97.2 percent)
- 100 percent for pediatric patients (versus 99 percent)
