The pediatric heart specialists at Norton Children’s Heart Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, work in collaboration with your local pediatrician and other health care providers.

Our specialists see patients at the same locations so you can schedule appointments with the same provider at each visit. Your child and your child’s condition are special. So should be their bond with their cardiologist.

Because kids with heart conditions can grow up to be healthy and active adults, Norton Children’s Heart Institute’s accredited Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program physicians see patients at the Bowling Green location as well.

Norton Children’s Heart Institute – Bowling Green Pediatric Cardiology Services

We use a fetal echocardiogram, commonly referred to as a fetal echo, to diagnose congenital heart defects prior to birth. Detecting a congenital heart defect early — before your baby is born — can help you and your health-care providers prepare.

This noninvasive tool uses ultrasound waves to evaluate an unborn baby’s heart – usually during the second or third trimester.

The fetal echo data is immediately transmitted from Bowling Green to Norton Children’s Heart Institute in Louisville, where our board-certified pediatric cardiologists interpret it.
