About Us

View the Children's Memorial Hermann Heart Institute fact sheet »

Heart InstituteThe Children's Heart Institute is a leader in diagnosing and treating heart problems. As one of only two pediatric cardiology facilities in southeast Texas, our sole focus on children's heart care allows us to offer the most advanced treatment and technology to Houston's smallest residents.

The physicians at the Children's Heart Institute are academic faculty at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School and leaders in the field of pediatric heart care, providing a broad range of services for children with congenital and acquired heart disorders.

 

 

Pediatric Cardiology

Children with complex health problems that often accompany heart disorders benefit from comprehensive, multidisciplinary care delivered in collaboration with other departments within Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital and from our affiliation with UTHealth Medical School.

Pediatric Heart Surgery

When pediatric cardiac surgery is required, we provide outstanding treatment focused on the best possible outcome for each child in our care. Recent improvements in non-surgical treatments allow our physicians to offer patients conservative treatment when appropriate.

Partnership with Referring Physicians

Throughout the evaluation and treatment process, we keep referring physicians informed about patient progress both in writing and by phone. After a patient's first office visit, referring physicians receive a summary of the initial diagnosis, pending tests and treatment options. In cases that involve surgery, a second follow-up report details surgical outcomes and post-operative therapy.

Prevention

Because many of the most significant risk factors for heart disease in adults have their origins in childhood, our medical staff pays special attention to prevention, encouraging parents to reduce their child's risk factors - hypertension, obesity, poor nutritional habits and lack of exercise. Treatment may be as simple as dietary modifications or cholesterol-reducing medications.
