Pediatric cardiology

Heart ailments are often thought of as an affliction of the adults. But unfortunately, children too suffer from, for no fault of their own, serious, and even life threatening cardiac conditions. Therefore Dr. Grant deemed it necessary that the Ruby Hall Clinic have a dedicated paediatric cardiology unit.

From accurate and timely diagnosis to appropriate and proficient treatment, the paediatric cardiology unit provides end-to-end cardiac care right from 18 weeks of gestation. These include both care and correction for congenital heart diseases like

  • Atrial Septal Defect
  • Ventricular Septal Defect
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus
  • Fallot’s Tetralogy
  • Gongenital valve stenosis
  • Coarctation of the aorta and pulmonary artery
  • Coronary AV fistulas
  • Pulmonary arterio-venous malformations
  • Aortopulmonary collaterals

as well as treatment for acquired cardiac conditions like

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease
  • Myocarditis
  • Cardiomyopathies

Our cardiac catheterization procedures offer treatment of many congenital heart defects without an open heart surgery, that include closure of septal defects, balloon dilatation and stenting.

Dr. Grant’s paediatric cardiac care facility also provides the full spectrum of paediatric electrophysiology services including

  • Radiofrequency ablation
