Our Nemours Cardiac Center has the experience and advanced pediatric imaging needed to diagnose some heart defects even while babies are still growing in the womb. Our pediatric cardiologists and heart surgeons can answer your questions, address your concerns and provide the latest treatment options — including heart transplants. We’re here to give our patients advanced care in a family setting.
Congenital (present at birth) heart defects means a baby is born with at least one heart problem. Also called “congenital heart disease,” some defects aren’t serious and just need to be managed by a child’s doctor. Others are critical and require treatment as soon as a baby is born.
