What to Expect
When minimally invasive interventions such as cardiac catheterization or valvuloplasty are not an option, to treat congenital heart disease, a pediatric or adult heart care physician may recommend surgery as the best course for treatment.
Congenital heart surgery can correct or improve heart disease malformations that developed before birth and are producing symptoms at birth, during childhood, or in adulthood. Our cardiothoracic surgeons utilize the latest surgical techniques to repair and reconstruct heart defects and allow the heart to function properly.
During the past several years, the pediatric cardiology team has performed more than 200 operations, including unifocalization of the pulmonary arteries.
