Giving your child’s heart- more life
Hearing from your doctor that your child has a congenital heart defect is tough. That’s when our pediatric cardiologist in Dubai comes into the role and helps ease your child’s heart condition with proper diagnosis and treatment.
Who are Pediatric cardiologists?
If your pediatrician has a question or suspicion about your child’s heart, then he/ she may refer your child to a pediatric cardiologist.
Pediatric cardiologists are uniquely trained specialists to diagnose and treat heart problems in children, including structural abnormalities and issues with the heart’s electrical system.
In cases where pediatric cardiac surgery is necessary, pediatric cardiologists work closely with pediatric heart surgeons and determine the best possible course of action.
Pediatric cardiologists are highly trained and skilled in providing the necessary heart care treatment to children. Our specialized pediatric cardiologists are certified and have the vivid experience necessary to diagnose and treat heart conditions in children, including those related to the heart’s structure and rhythm.
