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.
