Heart murmurs are common in children, and they can range from mild to serious. Heart murmurs may be congenital (present at birth), or they can develop over time. Because there’s often another condition that causes the heart murmur, it’s important to see a specialist. You can trust the experienced children’s heart experts at Nemours Children's. 

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons (specialize in surgical procedures of the chest) are here to answer your questions, address your concerns, and identify the cause of your child’s murmur, and if treatment is needed. Our Nemours Cardiac Center teams care for your child and family from diagnosis through treatment — and help your child live their life to the fullest.
