Conditions and services

The cardiovascular program at Children’s Minnesota offers a full range of services.

We diagnose and treat a full range of heart and blood vessel conditions in fetuses, babies, children and teens. Our patients also include adults who need long-term care for heart defects they have had since birth. We know your child deserves the very best cardiovascular care, and one thing will remain the same: our commitment to excellence.

About 1 in every 100 babies is born with a heart defect. Some are critically ill at birth. Others are diagnosed later during routine doctor visits. These heart defects can take numerous forms.
