The pediatric cardiology team of fellowship-trained, board-certified experts from Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando come to Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Lakeland to evaluate, manage and treat all kinds of pediatric cardiac conditions — from the mild to the complex.
At Nemours, we understand the unique needs of children and the concerns of parents. We take the time to answer all your questions, and to provide compassionate care for your child. It’s our goal to diagnose heart conditions as early as possible so we can develop a plan and begin treatment.
Located at the Lakeland Regional Health Center building, Nemours pediatric cardiology teams offer Polk County families quality care for kids with congenital (present at birth) and acquired (occurs over time) heart disease. You can trust we’ll do everything in our power to ensure your child has the best chance for a healthy and happy life, today and tomorrow.
At Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Lakeland, our Nemours pediatric cardiology experts evaluate and treat children of all ages, from newborns to teens, with the following symptoms and conditions:
We offer several types of on-site cardiac imaging and diagnostic testing in a kid-friendly atmosphere, including:
If needed, our pediatric cardiology team provides more comprehensive services at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando, which is part of the Nemours Cardiac Center. Additional tests may include:
If you’re pregnant and your doctor suspects your baby may have a possible heart problem, we offer fetal diagnostic cardiology services and consultations for expectant parents. As early as the 18th week of the pregnancy, we can perform fetal echocardiography (fetal “echo”) — an in-depth cardiac ultrasound study that allows us to view the structure, function and rhythm of your baby’s heart while still in the womb.
If we detect a problem, we’ll help you understand your baby’s condition, coordinate consultations with one of our pediatric cardiologists and plan for any necessary treatment at, or soon after, the birth.
Sports are a great way for to kids to maintain health and physical fitness, but overexertion can stress the heart and worsen an undetected heart condition. At Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Lakeland, our trained pediatric cardiology specialists provide comprehensive heart evaluations for athletes before they hit the track, field or court — helping to ensure safe game play.
Our pediatric sports evaluations generally include:
Depending on your child’s symptoms or condition, your pediatric cardiologist may also order cardiovascular imaging (echocardiogram, MRI, CT, etc.), cardiac event monitoring or lab tests.
No matter what your child’s condition, we recognize the importance of the family in the care and healing process. Because many of the children we see have chronic (long-term) illnesses that require repeated visits, we are committed to building strong relationships with families. We’re also committed to teaching our patients and their families about their condition and how best to manage it. Through education, we can help improve your child’s quality of life.
