Conditions and Procedures

Pediatric heart disease includes both congenital (link to congenital heart disease page below) (present at birth) and acquired (developed during childhood) heart conditions.  Some conditions involve holes or connections between the chambers of the heart. Others involve heart valves, the blood vessels arising from the heart, or the muscle of the heart itself.  Each heart condition has its own unique course of treatment and care.

When you meet with your child’s heart care team at Doernbecher, your child’s condition and recommended treatment will be reviewed with you in detail.
