What is a Pediatric Cardiologist?

Pediatric cardiologists are heart doctors who work with children. Their practice is different from that of heart doctors who treat adults. Pediatric cardiologists primarily treat problems with a child’s heart’s structure or rhythm.

A pediatric cardiologist will work with your child’s regular pediatrician or another primary care provider. Pediatric cardiologists don’t do surgery. If your child needs an operation, you’ll need to see a children’s heart surgeon.

What Does a Pediatric Cardiologist Do?

Pediatric cardiologists look for heart issues using tools such as echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, and imaging tests. They look for problems in the heart's formation or in the way it beats. Children may see a pediatric cardiologist if they have issues such as chest pain, dizziness, or fainting, and the doctor rules out heart issues.
Pediatric cardiologists treat children with both congenital (present from birth) and acquired heart problems. Like other pediatricians, they normally see children until the age of 18 or sometimes 21. Some may see older patients who are living with heart defects. Recent developments in cardiology have allowed more people with childhood heart problems to reach adulthood. Many need to have regular medical monitoring and medical possibly more surgery as adults. Some pediatric cardiologists specialize in treating adults living with congenital heart problems.
Depending on the need, pediatric cardiologists can give inpatient or outpatient care. Rather than see patients, some work in research or go into medical education.
