Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need.

Minnesota

Mayo Clinic in Minnesota is one of the world's leading centers for congenital heart disease treatment, including ongoing care for adults who were treated for pulmonary atresia as children.

The doctors in the Center for Congenital Heart Disease manage all aspects of complex congenital heart disease, including cyanotic heart disease and pulmonary hypertension, and pregnancy and contraception. They work with specialists in pediatric cardiovascular diseases, cardiovascular diseases, cardiovascular surgery, anesthesiology, radiology, maternal fetal medicine and the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic to care for people of all ages. The same group of doctors cares for people who have congenital heart disease from birth to old age.

For more than 60 years, Mayo Clinic doctors have been treating congenital heart disease in children and adolescents. Each year, heart specialists treat more than 5,000 children and adolescents who have congenital heart disease. Heart surgeons perform more than 350 operations each year to treat congenital heart disease. Doctors and researchers have contributed many developments in congenital heart disease treatment, including helping to create the subspecialty of pediatric cardiology.

Children with congenital heart disease are cared for in the Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The hospital includes a 25-bed cardiovascular unit dedicated to pre- and postsurgical care of children who have congenital heart disease.
