Cardiology

Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Cardiology. This is a very exciting time as we embark on a journey to create a new division and make it one of the best in the country. Our mission is to support families of patients with cardiac conditions and provide compassionate care for the individual patients suffering from congenital heart disease, starting in utero, infancy, childhood, and through adulthood.

We aim to help patients with acquired heart disease and strive to prevent future heart disease by helping to identify and control risk factors in children.

The services that are going to be provided include evaluation and medical management of:

  • Congenital and structural heart disease
  • Cardiomyopathies, or disease of the heart muscle, both familial and acquired
  • Acquired heart diseases
  • Rhythm disorders
  • Chest pain
  • Syncope (fainting)
  • Heart disease in athletes
  • Heart failure
  • Preventive cardiology including obesity, hypertension, and high cholesterol
  • Fetus with known or suspected cardiac conditions
  • Common cardiac conditions, such as heart murmurs

Clinical evaluation by experienced specialists performing, as needed, diagnostic testing includes: 

  • Performance and interpretation of pediatric transthoracic echocardiogram
  • Performance and interpretation of fetal echocardiogram
  • Performance and interpretation of electrocardiogram
  • 24-48 hour Holter interpretation
  • Event monitor interpretation

 We will be providing additional services including:

  • Electrophysiology studies and interventions
  • Cardiac MRI interpretation
  • Trans esophageal echocardiogram
  • Exercise stress testing, stress testing with pulmonary function testing, and stress echocardiograms

As we expand in the future, we aim to provide comprehensive cardiovascular services including diagnostic cardiac catheterization, catheter-based interventions and surgical interventions through Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to patients who are seeking local care. At this time, we will refer such patients’ needed services that are not currently available at our institution to the centers of their choice. We will clinically support sick patients and facilitate their transport. We will otherwise coordinate the transfer of care for the more stable patients for the duration of the interventions or treatments.
