Congenital Cardiology

Centra Medical Group Stroobants Cardiovascular Center offers comprehensive care for children and adults born with heart disease (congenital heart disease).

Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect with one person out of 120 born with a heart defect. Because of advances in medicine and surgery, over 90 percent of children born with heart defects live into adulthood and beyond.  Our team provides formal clinical care in three venues: fetal cardiology clinic, pediatric cardiology clinic, and adult congenital cardiology clinic.

Fetal Cardiology: The diagnosis of congenital heart disease is increasingly made before birth. Knowing the details of the condition before birth provide the opportunity for coordination of care and improved health outcomes for infants born with heart disease.

Pediatric congenital cardiology: After birth, infants are seen in follow up in our pediatric cardiology clinic. Comprehensive surgical and inpatient care is coordinated with regional academic institutions.
