Heart Program Conditions and Services

Congenital Heart Defects

Nearly one in every 100 babies is born with some type of heart defect, making congenital heart disease the most common birth defect. Our specialists treat a full range of congenital heart defects and abnormalities. Learn more about the congenital heart defects we treat.

Diagnostic Methods

Our board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians are skilled at pinpointing a diagnosis — often before a baby is born. Our experience, paired with state-of-the-art technology in locations around Kentucky and Southern Indiana, mean you can get an accurate diagnosis and follow-up care without having to travel too far from home.

Heart Conditions

Heart disease in children can be caused by heart defects present at birth, viral infections or illnesses that develop later in childhood because of a genetic condition.

Treatment Options

Some pediatric heart issues are complex and require surgery, while others do not. Sometimes the heart condition will resolve itself and the child’s physician will monitor the issue as the child grows. Learn more about treatment options for heart conditions.
