Congenital Heart Disease

Also known as: Congenital Heart Defects

When the heart or blood vessels near the heart do not develop normally before birth, a condition called congenital heart defect occurs.

Congenital heart defects occur in about 8 percent to 10 percent of every 1,000 infants. About 1,000,000 adults in the United States have congenital heart disease.

Typically, the cause is unknown. However, sometimes a viral infection, environmental or hereditary factors may contribute to the condition.


Providence brings together the skills of specialists in the areas of cardiology, cardiac surgery and cardiac anesthesiology to deliver expert personalized care for infants, children and adolescents, and adults with congenital heart disease. Our specialists offer a wealth of experience in traditional procedures, as well as innovative techniques, all performed with state-of-the-art technology.
