Tetralogy of Fallot care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic team

Mayo Clinic doctors treat people with all types of heart conditions, including children and adults with congenital heart disease. Mayo doctors trained in cardiovascular medicine, cardiovascular surgery, pediatric cardiology and other areas work together as a team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.

  • Advanced diagnosis and treatment. Mayo cardiovascular surgeons have experience and expertise treating tetralogy of Fallot and other congenital heart diseases. Cardiovascular surgeons have experience performing intracardiac repair surgery — a procedure that improves and redirects blood flow in the heart so that blood flows in the correct direction — to treat tetralogy of Fallot.
