Norton Children’s Heart Institute treatment options
The board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists at Norton Children’s Heart Institute, affiliated with the University of Louisville, are skilled at making a precise diagnosis of a heart condition. They work with you and your other physicians to develop a detailed treatment plan customized to your child.
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 your child grows. Sometimes your child’s physician will refer you to a pediatric cardiologist who is specifically trained to prescribe medications and order diagnostic tests to better define your child’s heart condition.
Our pediatric cardiologists and pediatric cardiothoracic physicians have the skill and experience to know when surgery will improve your child’s heart condition, and when it will not. If your child’s condition requires an operation, our pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons have the experience to lead you through the best options available to treat your child’s condition.
