Getting an Early Start

You may know that most children with heart conditions are born with congenital heart defects. But did you know that the sooner your child can get diagnosed and treated, the better? You can count on our pediatric cardiology experts to give you an accurate, swift diagnosis. Our team at Nemours duPont Pediatrics, Dover will recommend treatment, too — from innovative, nonsurgical catheter procedures in some instances to surgery for more complex cases.

Understanding Congenital Heart Defects

When your child has a heart condition, learning as much as you can about the problem can help make things much less stressful and scary — for you, your child and your whole family. Understanding congenital heart defects can help you talk to your child about what what to expect. Plus, the more you know, the more informed you can be to make educated decisions about — and be a better advocate for — your child’s health care.
