We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnose and treat pediatric heart conditions. The following is a list of heart conditions in children that our team of experts treats.
An awareness of heartbeats, an uncomfortable but common complaint. A doctor can help determine if the palpitations are dangerous.
A tube-like connection between the aorta and pulmonary artery, which usually closes shortly after birth, but sometimes doesn't close, commonly in premature infants.
A chronic condition most often seen after the onset of puberty, usually indicated by the elevation of heart rate upon standing, causing dizziness and palpitations.
A pulmonary valve that doesn't open properly, causing the right ventricle of the heart to pump harder, restricting the amount of blood reaching the lungs for oxygenation.
