Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Disease

  • Diagnosis and treatment of infants, children, and adolescents with known or suspected congenital heart disease, acquired heart disease, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, and syncope
  • Evaluation of pediatric patients at risk for development of cardiovascular disease for reasons including a positive family history, a history of chemotherapy, or existence of a disease or genetic condition associated with the development of cardiovascular complications (such as sickle cell disease and Duchenne muscular dystrophy)
  • Specific cardiovascular conditions managed include:
    • Aortic Arch Anomalies
    • Aortic Stenosis
    • Atrial Septal Defect
    • Atrioventricular Septal Defect
    • Coarctation Of The Aorta
    • Dilated Cardiomyopathy
    • Endocarditis
    • Heart Valve Disease
    • Heterotaxy Syndromes
    • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
    • Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
    • Kawasaki Disease
    • Marfan Syndrome
    • Patent Ductus Arteriosus
    • Pericarditis
    • Pulmonary Stenosis
    • Supraventricular Tachycardia
    • Tetralogy Of Fallot
    • Ventricular Septal Defect
    • Ventricular Tachycardia
    • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome
    • Others
  • Conditions diagnosed in pediatric patients may be followed well into adulthood.

Fetal Cardiology Evaluation and Diagnoses

  • Arrhythmias
  • Cardiomyopathies
  • Atrioventricular Septal Defect
  • Tricuspid Atresia
  • Pulmonary Atresia
  • Transposition Of The Great Arteries
  • Tetralogy Of Fallot
  • Aortic Stenosis
  • Pulmonary Stenosis
  • Truncus Arteriosus
  • Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
  • Double Outlet Right Ventricle
  • Complex Single Ventricle
  • Others

We routinely perform an electrocardiogram (EKG) for new pediatric cardiology patients. Echocardiograms, exercise stress test/stress echo, and Holter/event monitor testing are also available when necessary for the initial or ongoing evaluation and treatment of the patient. Fetal echocardiograms are performed on all fetal cardiology patients.
