The cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons in the Department of Pediatric Cardiology cover all subspecialty areas, from fetal care to neurocardiology, and offer the full range of diagnostic, interventional and surgical procedures. Their commitment to lifelong congenital heart disease management leads to close collaboration with Cleveland Clinic’s top-ranked adult heart program for seamless transition to adult care.
