Cardiology

Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital has dedicated pediatric cardiologists who are trained and have developed their expertise in treating pediatric heart conditions.


Pediatric heart-related problems include heart murmurs, abnormal heart rhythm, irregular heartbeat, chest pain, fainting spells, and congenital heart disease. If you feel that your child might be experiencing one of these conditions, consult your doctor. You may be referred to us for some cardiac function testing. Once your child has been thoroughly evaluated and monitored, a course of treatment will be recommended which may include heart medication or in more severe cases, a scheduled surgical procedure.
