Pediatric cardiology services offer advanced diagnostic and treatment services to children with heart problems. Pediatric cardiology includes treatment for congenital (present at birth) heart disease as well as with heart conditions that develop during childhood. Evaluation can begin with the fetus, since some heart problems can be detected before birth.
MaineHealth provides the only complete children’s cardiac program north of Boston, including the only fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologist in the state of Maine. Services include:
Cardiac MRI for the assessment of cardiac function and vascular anatomy
Electrophysiology (EP) services provide expert testing and care for pediatric heart rhythm disorders
If you are a provider who would like to refer a patient for MaineHealth pediatric cardiovascular services, please review our clinical guidelines and call 207-883-5532.
