Presbyterian’s pediatric and adult congenital cardiology program has an interdisciplinary team of board-certified providers.

This includes a pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon, a pediatric interventional cardiologist, and cardiologists who focus on fetal cardiology, adult congenital cardiology, electrophysiology, congenital heart disease, and acquired heart diseases in both pediatric and adult patients.

This program has been available to the Albuquerque community for over 30 years.

As part of Presbyterian Heart and Vascular Care as well as maintaining a strong relationship with the Children’s Center at Presbyterian, they provide access to specialists in cardiology, obstetrics, neonatology, hematology, pharmacology, endocrinology, neurology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, and many other medical specialties.

Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect. About 1 in 1,000 children worldwide are born with a congenital heart defect.

Early detection is crucial for babies with congenital heart defects so Presbyterian wants to ensure New Mexicans have the information they need.
