Adult congenital heart program
Brilliant advancements in pediatric medicine and surgery mean that more and more children are not only surviving, but growing up to become adults who are leading full lives. That also means that the need for ongoing care for adults with congenital heart defects is growing as well.
Here at Cook Children's, we care for the needs of patients with congenital heart disease from the moment they're born, and we stay with them all the way into adulthood. Our Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) is one of only a few formal programs nationwide to offer inpatient and outpatient care for teen and adult patients with congenital heart disease, because adulthood, like childhood, should be as simple as possible.
