Pediatric Cardiology

Caring for your child’s heart is our top priority.  We understand the importance and urgency behind knowing about their heart condition, diagnosis and options for treatment. Our pediatric cardiology team treats all cardiac conditions and does so with care, compassion and expertise.

At Banner Children’s, we work closely with you through each phase of your child’s care journey, from diagnosis to treatment to recovery, all to make sure you have the information you need to support your child during these times. Our team of compassionate experts collaborates daily to address your child’s needs, leaving no stone unturned.

What Is Pediatric Cardiology?

Pediatric cardiology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of children with heart conditions. Today, one in 100 kids is born with a defect of the heart. Pediatric cardiologists work with children from before birth or infancy through childhood and even into adulthood for an important continuum of care. Our teams provide a multidisciplinary approach and our pediatric cardiologists work together with Banner - University Medicine to provide the most advanced medical care throughout life.

The pediatric and adult congenital cardiology team at Banner Children’s is made up of cardiologists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatric and neonatal ICE specialists and specialized nurses working together to provide the highest level of care for your child. We provide a full spectrum of cardiology services, including:

Congenital Heart Defects

Congenital heart defects, one of the most common types of birth defects, are cardiac conditions that present at birth and affect the structure and how blood pumps through the heart. Our pediatric cardiology team diagnoses and treats congenital heart defects that often develop before birth. We help evaluate, diagnose and manage pregnancies at risk. Early detection of these congenital heart conditions allows for appropriate evaluation and timely care. Because Banner Children’s is part of the broader Banner family, our staff can follow children from their diagnosis in infancy through adulthood to ensure they have cardiology care through all stages of life.

Pediatric Heart Testing and Diagnosis

The Banner Children’s team knows how vital the testing and diagnosis process is to the long-term health of your child. That’s why we use state of the art technology to better understand your child’s cardiac condition. Your pediatric cardiologist may order imaging tests to make a diagnosis. Imaging tests are painless and can help show how your child’s heart is functioning and how their condition may be affecting the heart. If your child needs testing, our team will ensure the experience is comfortable and safe.
