Adult congenital heart disease care at Mayo Clinic
Your Mayo Clinic care team
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart disease (cardiologists) and heart surgery (cardiac surgeons) have vast experience evaluating and treating adults with congenital heart disease and all types of heart conditions.
Mayo cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and other specialists work together to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days. Doctors at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. Doctors take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need.
