Diagnosis & Treatment

Although children’s heart conditions can’t be prevented, a lot can be done to improve and often completely repair kids’ hearts at any age. Thanks to advanced technology and our expert cardiology teams at Nemours, most children born with a heart defect or condition — even newborns only hours old — can be quickly diagnosed and treated right when it matters the most. That’s why we specialize in early detection and repair — so your child will have the very best possible chance for a healthy future.

We evaluate and counsel children of all ages who may be at risk for future heart problems associated with being overweight, or having high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Plus we’re internationally recognized for investigations into preventive cardiology and maintain a leadership role in national efforts to prevent heart disease.
