We're all on the same team. If we determine that heart surgery is the best option for your child, we work closely with the cardiothoracic surgeon to ensure that care is coordinated and seamless.

Patient and family history is important for us in understanding your child’s heart health. Our team also provides physicals for children with a risk of heart disease, so they can hit the athletic field and compete safely.
