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.

We offer a Comprehensive Heart Center with a multidisciplinary team including congenital heart disease experts, elite pediatric cardiovascular surgeons and an Adult Congenital Heart Clinic.

"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." 

The addition of Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando as a third center provides opportunities for collaboration in treatment, research and education aimed at providing compassion and state-of-the-art care, while developing new approaches in treating congenital heart disease.
