Pediatric Cardiology and Pediatric Heart Surgery
Pediatric Cardiology is specialized care for babies, children and adolescents with heart problems. The field of pediatric cardiology is devoted to finding, treating and preventing heart and blood vessel disease in children from infancy to adolescence, including structural, functional, and rhythm (heartbeat) problems. Pediatric cardiologists treat congenital heart disease (present at birth) or acquired heart disease in children and infants and occasionally diagnose and treat infants who are still in the womb. Congenital heart disease is the single most common form of birth defect, affecting nearly one out of every 100 babies born in the United States. When pediatric heart surgery is needed, cardiologists refer their patients to pediatric cardiac surgeons.
