Congenital Heart Surgery

Congenital Heart Surgery

The Most Advanced Care for the Smallest Patients

The last words any parent wants to hear are “life-threatening heart condition.” No one understands this emotional rollercoaster more than the team at Florida Hospital for Children.

Our surgeons treat a wide array of pediatric cardiac conditions including arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, heart defects and valve disease. If your child’s heart condition requires surgery, your cardiologist will refer you to our congenital heart surgery team.

"Congenital heart disease is a lifelong issue," said Dr. Constantine Mavroudis. "One out of every 125 babies born in the United States is born with a congenital heart defect. It is important that these patients have a team and facility in place to care for them throughout their entire lives. The program at Florida Hospital for Children has been set up to care for all patients, from infants to adults."

Florida Hospital for Children has a dedicated, 10-bed, pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PICU), which provides families with world-class, personalized care.
