Expertise and rankings

Mayo Clinic doctors have been treating congenital heart disease in children and adolescents for decades. This type of specialty care is crucial for life-threatening conditions such as pulmonary atresia. Each year, pediatric heart specialists at Mayo Clinic treat hundreds of babies and children who have pulmonary atresia.

People born with pulmonary atresia require follow-up care and monitoring throughout their lives. At Mayo Clinic's Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic, cardiologists trained in congenital heart disease provide advice and consultation regarding all types of medical conditions or treatments — including minor surgery, pregnancy or heart surgery.
