Pediatric & Congenital Heart Disease
Congenital heart disease or congenital heart defects are defects in one or more structures of the heart or blood vessels that occur before birth. Some patients born with congenital heart disease have simple defects with no symptoms, while other patients may have complex defects that are life-threatening and require lifelong care.
Mount Sinai Heart's pediatric cardiologists and cardiac surgeons have tremendous experience in diagnosing and treating congenital heart defects. We specialize in complex and high-risk cases, including some formerly considered inoperable. We have extensive experience in innovative diagnostic technologies, such as fetal echocardiogram and magnetic resonance imaging. We also offer a wide range of state-of-the-art treatments for pediatric and congenital heart disease, from interventional procedures to mechanical support and transplant surgery.
At Mount Sinai Heart, we believe in providing the highest quality of health care to all our patients, including our youngest hearts. We also focus on every aspect of your hospital experience, from your interactions with our staff to the cleanliness of your room. We emphasize service and compassion from the moment you enter our hospital until discharge. As part of this effort, we facilitate coordination between pediatric cardiologists and cardiac surgeons to ensure comprehensive care for our littlest patients.
