When you first find out that your child has a heart condition that requires heart surgery, it is a very scary and overwhelming time. We understand that you will have concerns and worries. You want to have compassionate, expert professionals caring for your child. 

If your child needs surgery to repair a heart problem, a pediatric heart (cardiac) surgeon has the knowledge and experience to treat your child. Pediatric heart surgeons offer the special care needed to fix both congenital (existing at birth) and acquired heart problems in children.

Pediatric heart surgeons treat complex congenital heart defects in newborns, children, and adolescents, as well as adults. Congenital heart defects are very different from the types of heart diseases that are common among adults. Repairing hearts in small bodies presents an added challenge. Pediatric heart surgeons have the special skills needed to provide the safest care for even the youngest and smallest patients who require heart surgery.

We understand the effect of heart surgery on your child and your family. We are here to offer compassionate support. It is our mission to take the best possible care of your child using the most advanced and appropriate treatment for the best possible outcome.
