A doctor examines a pediatric patient

We bring together the strengths of the fields of cardiology and medical genetics in one clinic. We care for patients and families with congenital heart disease, including those with a known syndrome with cardiovascular involvement. Those can include structural congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies and vascular disease (including but not limited to William, Marfan, DiGeorge, Down, Noonan and Turner syndromes).

Additionally, we see patients with diagnosed or suspected cardiovascular disease and signs or symptoms suggestive of a syndrome. Examples include associated birth defects, growth failure not explained by the cardiovascular disease, developmental delay or dystrophy (weakening, degeneration or abnormal development of muscles). We provide comprehensive care and state-of-the-art genetic testing, including chromosomal microarray and whole exome sequencing. Patients and families receive dedicated counseling for the cardiovascular manifestations, as well as the important genetic implications.
