Cardiomyopathy is a condition that makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the body. Although some forms of cardiomyopathy in children may resolve, most are lifelong conditions that can be managed but not cured. If your child has cardiomyopathy, our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons (specialists in surgical procedures of the chest, including the heart and lungs) are here to give them compassionate, skillful care. We will walk side-by-side with your child and family from diagnosis through treatment and beyond — to help your child live life to the fullest.
At the Nemours Children's Cardiac Center, our team has the expertise to provide accurate, efficient diagnosis and treatment. The team of pediatric heart experts are knowledgeable in the latest advances and techniques in treating cardiomyopathy in children. Many are named to the Best Doctors in America® list, year after year. In addition to providing diagnosis and treatment, the Nemours Cardiac Center teams participate in ongoing research with other pediatric cardiac institutions — so every kid can benefit from our experience and have hope for a healthier future.
