Pediatric Cardiology

Pediatric Cardiology is the practice of medicine that focuses on the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiac diseases from conception throughout life. Most children are born with a normal, healthy heart. In some cases, children are born with defects, abnormalities, or heart disease and these defects are recognized prior to birth, which provides the paediatrician an opportunity to begin treatment upon identification.

At HMS Mirdif Hospital our highly trained and well-experienced Paediatricians specializes in investigating, diagnosing, managing and treating congenital or acquired heart disease and heart-related conditions in children and infants. Our multidisciplinary team will develop a personalized program that includes an appointment schedule, treatment plan, medication awareness, diet, and exercise.
