Preventing Future Heart Problems

We do whatever it takes to improve kids’ quality of life.

Sierra, a cardiac surgery patient, shares a moment of joy with her mother, Melanie.

At the Nemours Cardiac Center, we also have a team of experts working in the area of preventive cardiology services. Our goal is to minimize or completely prevent cardiac problems down the road.

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 (hyperlipidemia). Our cardiologists will perform a complete cardiovascular risk evaluation, including a thorough medical history, family history and comprehensive physical exam, with diagnostic testing as needed.

We’ll work with you to develop a personalized management plan that encourages practical lifestyle changes to reduce your child’s likelihood of future cardiovascular disease. And we’ll keep your child’s primary care physician informed every step of the way.
