Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery

Cardiac surgery in children is recommended to repair heart defects and for the child’s wellbeing in the long-term.

Pediatric cardiac surgery operations are treated and followed up with a multidisciplinary approach, which includes Pediatric Cardiology, Cardiac Anesthesiologist, Intensive Care Specialist, Neonatal Specialist and different pediatric sub-branches

Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery

Post-surgery, the child will be kept in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for a couple of days for observation. The patient will be sent home depending on the surgery performed and the condition of the infant/child post-surgery. 3-4 weeks is the estimated period for recovery at home. This can extend to 6-8 weeks in case of severe surgeries.
