When our littlest patients need surgery for a heart or blood vessel condition they’re born with, they’re in expert hands. Our team is recognized around the world for giving newborns with even the most complex conditions the best possible chance to live — and live well.
As part of award-winning pediatric heart centers in Delaware and Florida, our newborn surgery survival rates are among the highest in the nation. We have vast expertise in early repair and use innovative technologies such as advanced imaging, 3D heart modelling and more. We’re also researching ways to make surgery safer for babies and how to protect their physical and mental health during development.
Our cardiothoracic surgery team works closely with experts in fetal heart specialists, cardiac anesthesiologists, cardiac critical care intensivists, cardiovascular genetics specialists, neonatologists, cardiac psychologists, and many others to plan treatment. Our nurses and advanced practice providers are highly skilled. As a team, we’re here before baby’s birth up to age 40.
If your baby needs surgery right after birth, we plan for safe, immediate transport to our hospitals. Healthy moms may even deliver at our hospital in Delaware. When minutes matter, you can trust our team.
