Pediatric Cardiology

With a specialized heart program for children of all ages, our expert team provides pediatric cardiology services at the Children's Hospital of Georgia. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of care to infants, children, and young adults with a variety of heart conditions. Parents trust our team of pediatric cardiologists, pediatric surgeons and pediatric anesthesiologists to help diagnose and treat their child’s heart conditions and improve their child’s quality of life.

The Children’s Hospital of Georgia is one of only three health systems across Georgia and South Carolina with a specialized pediatric heart program that includes both cardiology and pediatric cardiothoracic surgery. From initial diagnosis to intraoperative and post-operative care, we’ll use a multidisciplinary approach for the best possible care of your child.

  • Arrhythmia
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Dyslipidemia and hyperlipidemia
  • Heart disease
  • Heart murmurs
  • Hypertension
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Syncope

State-of-the-Art Pediatric Cardiac Diagnostic Testing

Through the use of state-of-the-art pediatric cardiac diagnostic testing, we provide expert and accurate diagnosis for your child. We offer a wide range of pediatric cardiac diagnostic tests such as:

  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI)
  • Computerized tomographic (CT) scans
  • Echocardiograms
  • Electrocardiograms
  • Exercise stress tests
  • Holter monitoring and event recorders

Once we have determined a diagnosis, we design a treatment plan that is right for your child’s particular heart condition. If necessary, our pediatric specialists can care for your child’s condition through surgical intervention. Our team are experts in cardiac surgery and perform hundreds of cardiothoracic procedures each year on children of all ages.

Fetal Cardiology

If you are pregnant and living with hypertension, diabetes, or another condition that affects your heart, you and your baby may be at risk. We offer specialized services through our Fetal Medicine Program that can help keep you and your baby healthy. Our physicians will design a customized treatment plan to manage maternal and fetal cardiology aspects during your pregnancy and determine the optimal method of labor and delivery for your unique needs.
