Pediatric heart diagnostics
If your child needs a fetal echocardiogram, cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or a computed tomography (CT) scan, you have access to an accredited echocardiology lab. The pediatric echocardiology lab uses technologies such as transesophageal, intracavitary and real-time pediatric 3D cardiography.
Pediatric heart surgery
Medical City Children's Hospital pediatric congenital heart specialists offer leading-edge heart surgery for infants, children, adolescents and unborn babies. Pediatric cardiology teams work with specialists from related fields, including the Maternal Fetal Institute and the Fetal Care Center, to provide your child with comprehensive, multidisciplinary care.
Pediatric cardiac rehabilitation
After your child's cardiac procedure or diagnosis, an exercise routine may be the last thing on your mind. However, for a variety of heart conditions, a supervised cardiac rehabilitation program can help improve your child's quality of life. Through supervised exercise, lifestyle education and psychosocial support, we can help your child recover from their cardiac event while building confidence and self-esteem.
