Child Cardiology Investigation and Treatment

What is Paediatric Cardiology?

Paediatric cardiology focuses on investigating and treating heart diseases that are present in the growing and developing child. This includes treating congenital heart disease (present at birth), arrhythmias (variations in heartbeat rhythm) and disturbances of circulatory function. 

Heart disease is an extremely broad term for many things that can go wrong with the heart. In the instance of children, heart disease still covers many types of problems that range from a condition that has no symptoms and is never diagnosed, to a problem that is severe and potentially life threatening that is apparent at birth.

One of the most common heart conditions in children is congenital heart disease. This is the general term for a range of birth defects that affect the normal way the heart works, and means that the condition is present from birth. This birth defect affects up to 8 in every 1,000 babies born in the UK.

Our investigations will enable us to highlight any issue showing within your child. Once diagnosed, we will be able to determine whether immediate treatment is required and, if so, the best course of action to take.

We have clinics based in Dorking, Surrey and Wimbledon, London, meaning we are ideally placed to provide paediatric cardiology treatment and investigation to children living in Croydon, Leatherhead, Kingston-upon-Thames, Tonbridge, Maidstone, north and south Kensington, Hammersmith, Twickenham, Camden Town, Wandsworth, and all nearby areas.
