​Children's Heart Center

Conditions We Treat

The Children’s Heart Center treats children and adults with a range of heart conditions that are present at birth or that develop after birth.

The general conditions we treat fall into these three areas:

  • Congenital heart defects – conditions caused by structural problems present before birth
  • Acquired heart diseases – conditions caused by health problems occurring after birth
  • Heart murmurs ​and arrhythmias – irregularities that may or may not be caused by a heart condition

The Diagnosis

A diagnosis of a heart condition can be a frightening experience for any patient or family. That’s why we at the Children’s Heart Center offer the state’s most comprehensive services to identify, care for and treat even the most complex congenital or acquired heart conditions, regardless of age.

Congenital Heart Defects

Our main focus is on the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric congenital heart defects. These are structural issues that develop alongside the child’s growth and can be detected as early as in the womb. Depending on the type and severity of the defect, we are able to begin steps to correct it shortly after birth.
