Department of Paediatric Cardiology at Ankura Hospitals
The department of paediatric cardiology at Ankura Hospitals handles all congenital and post-natal cardiac defects in infants & child.
Paediatric cardiac conditions require expert diagnosis and advanced patient care for the most optimum results. It is our steadfast endeavour to deliver the most comprehensive cardiac care and deliver the best of outcomes.
Paediatric cardiologists receive extensive training in diagnosing and treating children’s cardiac problems. Paediatric cardiology over the years has developed in many ways, and today, it may begin with the foetus, as heart problems can now be detected even before birth. Over the last few decades, we can clearly observe that there has been a huge spike in heart-related issues, especially in urban areas. This could be attributed to the rigours of a modern lifestyle.
A majority of heart conditions in children are congenital in nature, that is these babies are inherently born with the condition.
With advanced technology and scanning mechanism it is now possible to detect congenital heart diseases while the baby is in the womb.
Advancements in medical science now allows for surgery & comprehensive treatment of heart conditions at a very young age.
Cardiac conditions can have a lasting impact on the child’s growth & development and thus needs to be monitored regularly.
