About the Children's Heart Program

Experts at the Children's Heart Program offer the most advanced surgical and nonsurgical treatment options available to children with congenital and acquired heart diseases. The Children’s Heart Program is a leader in all aspects of pediatric cardiac care, with outcomes that rank among the country’s elite programs, providing children of all ages with a continuum of care from fetal diagnosis into adult cardiac care.

As one of only two pediatric cardiac facilities in southeast Texas, the physicians at the Children's Heart Program are academic faculty at The John P. and Kathrine G. McGovern Medical School (formerly UTHealth Medical School) and are leaders in the field of pediatric heart care.

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.


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.
