Pediatric Cardiology

We provide cardiology clinic service for diagnosis and continued pre- and post-operative care for patients with suspected or confirmed congenital and/or acquired heart disease. We offer care for patients from the prenatal period until 18 years of age.
Our services include specialized non-invasive diagnostic procedures including: echocardiograms (fetal and post-natal), electrocardiograms, exercise tests, holters/event monitoring.

For more information, visit the Pediatric Cardiology Clinic page for patients and families.

1. known/suspected structural heart disease;
2. documented arrhythmias;
3. Kawasaki disease;
4. (pre-) Syncope;
5. chest pain/ palpitations/ shortness of breath surrounding exercise;
6. genetic syndromes;
7. metabolic conditions (diabetes, muscular dystrophies, hypertension, cholesterol/lipid disorders);
8. exposure to cardiotoxic medication;
9. family history of cardiomyopathy, sudden cardiac/early death of unknown cause. Fetal echocardiograms are considered for fetuses at an elevated risk of heart disease.
