Heart conditions we treat at CHoR
Our cardiologists care for children who have heart disease or abnormalities. We might see a child for a specific heart condition that we can treat with a single visit or two; in other cases, such as children with congenital heart disease, we develop a long-term bond as they grow up and manage their condition over time.
With every case, we aim to develop a tailored care heart care plan using the least-invasive treatments, doing our best to get your child back to the important job of just being a kid.
Care for every heart condition: Developing the best heart care plan possible for you and your child
Whether your child is born with a congenital heart defect or problems develop in the following years, trust our expert cardiac specialists to develop the best care plan at our pediatric hospital. We care for children with a range of conditions, including:
- Arrhythmias and conduction abnormalities, variations in heartbeats and electrical impulses
- Cardiomyopathy, where your heart muscle isn’t doing its job to pump blood through the body
- Chest pain
- Congenital heart diseases (pediatric and adult)
- Connective tissue diseases that can impact blood flow
- Dyslipidemias, or elevated cholesterol
- Heart failure
- Heart murmurs
- Kawasaki disease and other causes of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle
- Syncope/palpitations, in which low blood pumping can cause fainting and other complications
- Chest wall deformities, where we collaborate with pulmonologists and radiologists to identify issues
- Cardiology and genetics, including Turner’s disease, where children are born with heart defects in addition to chromosomal abnormalities
- Neuromuscular diseases, which – because the heart is one of your most important muscles – are treated in tandem with pulmonology, neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation
- Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and other syncope/palpitation disorders where blood doesn’t flow appropriately, leading to symptoms such as fainting
