PEDIATRIC HEART CARE YOU CAN DEPEND ON

Children may need an evaluation by a pediatric cardiologist if they have heart murmurs, abnormal heart rhythms or faint frequently.
HOW OUR PEDIATRIC CARDIAC CARE WORKS
Our child heart experts can evaluate and create comprehensive treatment plans for children and teenagers with congenital heart defects, arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorders), cardiomyopathies and heart failure.
PCCST’s pediatric cardiology specialists work with a team to provide comprehensive, coordinated care, which may include pediatric heart surgeons and electrophysiologists (heart rhythm specialists) as well as occupational therapists, medical geneticists, pediatric specialists and dietitians.
Procedures pediatric cardiologists perform may include heart catheterizations to evaluate the heart’s function and relieve blockages. If surgery is required, pediatric cardiologists also work as a team with pediatric cardiovascular surgeons.
