Pediatric Cardiology

 

What We Do

Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians who specialize in diagnosing and treating children’s heart problems, including those detected before birth. They are trained to perform numerous diagnostic procedures, including noninvasive imaging, echocardiography and cardiovascular MRI, and are experts in treating infants, children and teens with a variety of cardiac conditions. They also diagnose heart conditions prenatally and are experts at counseling families about what to expect when a heart defect is diagnosed.

 

Conditions We Treat

Our board-certified specialists are among the nation’s leading experts in pediatric cardiology. Physicians’ areas of expertise include:

 

  • Congenital heart diseases
  • Heart murmurs
  • Syncope (fainting)
  • Chest pain
  • Dizzy spells
  • Heart palpitations
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Pediatric hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Genetic screening for families coping with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) or Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS)
  • New cardiac drug therapies
  • Noninvasive and invasive electrophysiological testing
  • Fetal heart ultrasound
  • Medical and catheter-based therapies for congenital heart disease
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Heart failure
  • Cardiomyopathy and heart transplantation
  • Kawasaki disease
  • Rheumatic fever

 

Why We Are Different

Our board-certified pediatric cardiologists are nationally known experts in children’s heart failure, heart transplantation, pediatric abnormal heart rhythms, syncope, chest pain and children’s heart diseases. They have authored many peer-reviewed cardiology studies, and have been investigators on many pediatric heart-related grants for the FDA and the NIH. They are currently involved in numerous clinical trials to study treatments for infants, children and adults with congenital heart diseases, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, heart failure, Kawasaki diseases and heart transplants.
