Pediatric Cardiac Surgery
Cardiac Surgery – Paediatric
Cardiac surgery in children is recommended to repair heart defects and for the child’s wellbeing in the long-term. Certain heart defects may demand immediate surgery after birth. In some cases, surgeries are performed months or even years after birth. The type and number of surgeries needed vary depending on the severity of the condition. Paediatric heart surgeons are trained to offer exclusive and comprehensive care to treat children and mend the defected heart.
Minimally invasive treatment procedures are considered for the patients initially. If they do not work out, the health care team is ready to proceed with more invasive methods to prevent infection and reduce risks. This period of time is very crucial for parents. SPS Hospitals’ experts realises the situation of the parents and communicates with them regularly to update the status of their child.
