Fetal Cardiology Program Why Choose Us

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

At Boston Children’s Hospital, our treatment is informed by our research. This means that your child is supported by our cardiovascular researchers, who are intensely focused on improving our understanding and treatment of heart defects and disorders that affect unborn infants and children after birth. Our clinical and basic scientists work together to quickly move discoveries to the bedside so you have access to the most advanced care possible.

In 2001, surgeons at Boston Children’s performed the first successful fetal heart surgery in the world. A decade —and more than 140 fetal heart operations later—several factors continue to differentiate our care:

  • Our team cares for your infant before birth and throughout his entire life, with one primary cardiologist managing each child’s treatment.
  • We achieve superior outcomes, even in the most complex cases.
  • Survival of the newborn is only our primary goal; our overall objective is to help each infant become a child with a normal physiology who can look forward to a long, healthy life ahead.
  • We partner with the Maternal-Fetal medicine specialists at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
  • Superior imaging at both the Brigham and Children’s allows the team to plan a well-informed course of action, whether it’s a fetal intervention or post-birth treatment.
