Our congenital heart disease care

We provide comprehensive care and support.

As you navigate the complexities of congenital heart challenges, we’re here to offer a steady hand of support and understanding.

Congenital heart disease is a prenatal condition, and we extend our care and support to expecting parents, starting before birth with our expertise in Maternal Fetal Medicine.

From the moment a child is born, we begin a lifelong partnership, considering every aspect of their growth to provide the best possible treatments and support. Through screenings and diagnostics all the way through maintenance, we monitor their health and well-being. In our care, you'll discover a dedicated team that stays with you for every beat.


What is congenital heart disease?

The journey of congenital heart disease often begins during pregnancy, where specialized care of Maternal Fetal Medicine steps in. Congenital heart challenges encompass a range of conditions that can affect children from the moment they take their first breath.

These challenges stem from intricate variations in heart structure and function. We know that every diagnosis carries a unique impact on every phase of a child’s life, and we are here offering our guidance and expertise every step of the way.

Our commitment extends beyond childhood, recognizing that congenital heart disease is not bound by age. Even as children transition into adulthood we remain partners in their care. Our collaborative approach bridges the expertise of both pediatric and adult doctors, ensuring seamless care that aligns with the evolving needs of each patient.

Our care journey begins before birth.

The journey of care for congenital heart challenges begins during pregnancy. Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialists and cardiologists come together to support both the expecting mother and their babies.

During these meetings, our staff provides counseling and planning that extend beyond just medical procedures. We understand that these moments are more than just clinical consultations; they are opportunities to create long-lasting connections, to address concerns, and lay the foundation for the road ahead.

As part of this comprehensive care, we collaborate closely with you to ensure that every aspect is considered, including the logistics of birth. The birth plan is carefully crafted, keeping in mind the specialized needs of children with congenital heart conditions. Our goal is to position you close to the facilities equipped to provide the necessary care, including potential surgeries, should they be required.

We know the emotions that accompany these decisions and the weight of the journey you’re about to undertake. With unwavering commitment, we stand by your side, supporting you through every step, and ensure that you receive the best possible care.

We are here to help you navigate care after birth.

The care journey doesn’t pause after birth—it continues with a meticulously designed check-in schedule that ensures your child’s well-being at every step.

In those initial weeks, your baby will be under our watchful care for 2-3 weeks, a time during which we dedicate ourselves to monitoring and attending to their unique needs.

After your baby gets home, we remain connected. We’ve crafted a schedule of check-ins: one week, one month, and then yearly. With each visit, we’re not just conducting medical assessments; we’re getting a better understanding of your child’s future. Every interaction adds a layer to our insight, guiding us to provide the best care possible.

These ongoing maintenance appointments are an important part of our comprehensive approach to care. These appointments usually include regular check-ups, continuous assessment of the heart’s function, and adapting treatment plans to match the evolving need of the patient.

We are committed to offering the most advanced treatment options.

We recognize that every congenital heart disease case is unique, and that is why we push the boundaries to craft treatment plans that are as exceptional as the individuals they are designed for.

For some, the path forward may involve intricate surgeries that require the highest level of expertise, for others it may be alternative avenues. We believe in turning impossibilities into possibilities and seeking the best possible treatments for each patient.

To achieve this, we harness the power of cutting-edge methodologies, utilizing advanced visualization techniques and even 3D printing to determine the best course of treatment.

We also offer transplantation. While this may not be a viable option for all, we’re dedicated to offering alternative avenues that lead to improved quality of life.
