Congential heart disease affects approximately one out of every one hundred newborns!

The department of Pediatric Cardiology at Sahyadri Hospitals is responsible for the diagnosis of congenital heart defects, performing diagnostic procedures such as echocardiograms, cardiac catheterizations, and electrophysiology studies, and for the ongoing management of the sequelae of heart disease in infants, children and adolescents.

The department is actively involved in research aimed at preventing both congenital and acquired heart disease in children. There are also few cardiac diseases that are acquired and caused by infections or post infection (Rheumatic Heart Diseases).
