Helping Hearts for Life

Congenital Heart Disease

When there is a defect in your heart’s structure, whether as an unborn baby, child or adult, our congenital heart team can help. We are one of the few centers in the United States that offers a seamless transition of care from childhood to adulthood. As an adult congenital heart center, we can provide the specialized, lifelong follow-up care you need.

Our team of cardiologists, interventionalists and cardiothoracic surgeons offer innovative solutions when your options may feel limited because they understand your heart and accommodate changes as you grow older. This includes 3D printing and active research to advance treatments and management of congenital heart disease. 

Dr. Stephen Cook, director of the adult congenital heart program at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital appeared on FOX17’s Morning Mix to discuss congenital heart disease and its treatments. Congenital Heart Disease can be very complex and requires life-long care. Find out more from this interview.


If you or your child has a congenital heart defect, it is important to choose the most advanced, proven care available. Turn to the congenital heart experts at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.
