Pediatric Cardiology

The Congenital Heart Center at Levine Children’s Hospital is setting the standard for excellence in caring for infants and children with heart diseases and defects. Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute’s board-certified pediatric cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and cardiac interventionists work in close collaboration with specialists from Levine Children’s Hospital to offer comprehensive pediatric cardiology services for infants and children with heart disease and defects. The skill and experience of this multidisciplinary team enables them to perform state-of-the-art evaluations and treatments for:

Newborn Intensive Care Nursery

The Levine Children’s Hospital’s newborn intensive care nursery is the primary referral center for the region, providing a full range of critical, life-saving services for the most fragile premature and critically ill newborns, including those with congenital defects and infants with complicated heart disease.

Newborns and children receive the highest quality care from skilled neonatal surgeons who use leading-edge approaches to perform minimally-invasive and open-heart surgery. When needed, they implant heart assist devices to correct heart rhythm problems, and perform pediatric heart transplants with excellent results.

Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

The only facility in the region to offer pediatric heart transplants and open-heart surgery, Levine Children’s Hospital has been nationally recognized by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons as a top program, and by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Children’s Hospital. Our surgeons have performed more than 1,000 surgeries in the past three years and success rates and outcomes are among the best in the nation. Surgical procedures include:

  • Aortic valve repair and replacement
  • Complex neonatal repair
  • Heart transplant and ventricular assist devices (VADs)
  • Mitral valve repair

Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Program

Levine Children’s Hospital also offers a comprehensive pediatric cardiac catheterization program to diagnose and correct certain congenital heart defects without surgery, and has the region’s first dedicated pediatric cardiovascular intensive care unit, providing specialized cardiac postoperative care for even the youngest patients.

Pediatric Cardiovascular ICU

The pediatric CVICU at Levine Children’s Hospital is made up of a dedicated team of cardiologists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and staff who use the latest technology to provide the highest quality care in the region.
