Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic

The staff in the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic at Mayo Clinic has experience and expertise in evaluating and treating adults with congenital heart disease. Each year, Mayo doctors evaluate and treat more than 9,900 adults and children with congenital heart disease. Doctors at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota treat adults with congenital heart disease.

Staff trained in adult congenital heart disease includes doctors trained in heart disease (cardiologists), doctors trained in heart surgery (cardiovascular surgeons), nurses and technicians. The multidisciplinary team collaborates to evaluate you and provide you with a personalized treatment plan for your condition.

Staff has specialized training in diagnosing and treating congenital heart disease and related complex medical issues. Mayo cardiovascular surgeons have extensive experience in performing heart surgery to repair congenital heart defects.

Cardiologists trained in congenital heart disease provide advice and consultation to you throughout your life regarding all types of medical conditions or treatments, including minor surgery, pregnancy or heart surgery.

The staff also communicates your treatment plan to your primary doctor and is available to answer questions from your doctor.

The cardiologists, nurse practitioners and nurses advise and educate you regarding your specific condition, previous surgeries and treatments, and provide you with continuing care. Clinic nurses are available by phone to answer your questions and concerns.

The goal of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic is to ensure that people born with congenital heart disease will live long, healthy lives. This is accomplished through optimal care provided by medically trained professionals with special expertise in all congenital heart diseases, including simple and complex diseases, and in follow-up care in those who've had prior surgery or intervention.
