Early Detection of Heart Conditions

Our clinical team works closely with families when heart abnormalities or arrhythmias are detected in a child before he or she is born to prepare for the infant’s arrival. We provide a full spectrum of care  for our patients in utero and as premature infants, young children, teens, young adults and throughout their lives.

Cardiovascular Genetics

We have the only cardiovascular genetics clinic in North Carolina – and one of only a few in the Southeast. Led by a doctor specialized in cardiovascular genetic disorders, we’re a one-stop shop for children with genetic heart concerns. From Marfan syndrome to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, patients can undergo examinations, treatments and genetic testing all in the same visit.

Communication During Treatment and Care

We understand the important role that parents and families play in the treatment of children and young adults with heart conditions. Our health care professionals make sure that parents and other family members clearly understand each step in the treatment process and we maintain close communication with our patients’ families throughout their treatment period.
