Fetal and Pediatric Cardiology

Fetal and Pediatric Cardiology Team

Fetal and Pediatric Cardiology Team

Our multi-disciplinary team of cardiologists and interventionalists provide innovative and personalized care for the most complex congenital heart defects from fetal life through childhood and even through adulthood. The team works to identify and diagnose problems and conditions that may affect your unborn child’s heart so that they can be treated with compassionate cardiac care, proactively.

Mount Sinai South Nassau’s pediatric cardiology team has earned IAC accreditation for Pediatric Transthoracic and Fetal echocardiography. We also offer a preventative clinic to our patients which focuses on pediatric hyperlipidemia and hypertension, and the team collaborates with our colleagues at Mount Sinai Heart to create a personalized treatment plan for your child so that they can lead a happy, healthy life.

The multifaceted cardiology team at Mount Sinai South Nassau is prepared to grow with your child as they transition into adulthood, and we have specialists that provide adult cardiology care as our patients age out of pediatric programs. This means that when you choose Mount Sinai South Nassau, you can obtain top notch cardiology care from fetal life into adulthood.

Conditions We Treat

Our expertise is healing all types of heart conditions, including those present at birth (congenital heart defects) and pediatric heart conditions found in children of all ages.

Our team of doctors and specialists in fetal cardiology, obstetrics, maternal fetal medicine, neonatology, pediatric surgery, cardiovascular genetics, and cardiothoracic surgery work together to provide the best possible outcome for your baby. We provide accurate diagnosis and care during your pregnancy and after delivery. We are here to treat, care for, and support you and your child every step of the way.

We often observe patients who have an increased risk of a fetal cardiac defect or anomaly. This risk may be the result of a family history of heart defects, maternal or fetal risk factors, or findings from a prenatal ultrasound.  

We offer at-risk patients testing or referrals for the following exams:

  • Fetal echocardiography: an ultrasound exam that gives your doctor a closer look at your unborn child’s heart
  • Fetal MRI: a noninvasive test that provides detailed images of non-cardiac abnormalities
  • Genetic testing: a blood test that can confirm or rule out inherited heart conditions
  • Maternal hyperoxygenation testing: detects lung disease or abnormality in the blood flow of a fetus

What to Expect

During your visit, you will undergo a comprehensive fetal echocardiogram. This noninvasive exam uses ultrasound to capture images of the structure and function of your unborn child’s heart. A fetal cardiac sonographer or physician will perform the exam.

If we discover any abnormalities, we will advise you about the condition and what it means for you and your baby. We will discuss any surgeries or procedures that may be a part of your child's treatment and discuss follow-up care.  Our team will be the link between you and our pediatric cardiac surgeon or specialist who may be involved in your baby's care.

Our fetal heart team will discuss recommendations for pregnancy and delivery. We will work with you and your obstetrician to decide the best course of action for your pregnancy and delivery care plan.
