Today, children with a congenital heart disease are living longer, healthier lives. For some adolescents this means transitioning care to an adult health care provider at age 18. Not at Nemours Children’s. We see young adults up to age 40.
Our adult program brings together Adult Congenital Heart Disease-certified cardiologists, advanced heart imaging specialists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons who are part of award-winning heart centers in Delaware and Florida. We’re experts in congenital heart disease.
As a system, we offer the full range of care including medical and surgical management (in Delaware), exercise stress testing, transitional services, and mental and dental health. We even provide cardiovascular genetics testing and counseling, pregnancy planning and high-risk obstetric heart care for moms-to-be with congenital heart disease.
Our program is recognized around the world for our treatment success and outcomes. We work with you through all ages and life stages.
