Preventive Cardiology Clinic
We have a dedicated team of specialists who provide preventive treatment for children who have high blood cholesterol with the risk of developing heart disease. In addition to diagnostic evaluations, the team provides counseling about diet and lifestyle changes tailored to each child.
Cardiovascular Genetics Clinic
The genetics clinic offers evaluations to detect when children have genetic conditions that could lead to cardiovascular health risks. Families will learn about genetic testing options and implications.
Outpatient and Outreach Clinics
Outpatient clinics are held daily at Children's Mercy Hospital and Children's Mercy South. Appointments can also be made at Children's Mercy Northland. Cardiologists provide outreach clinics in Joplin, Mo., St. Joseph, Mo., and Junction City, Kan.
Cardiac Catheterization and Hybrid Labs
Children's Mercy has two cardiovascular lab rooms located within the operating room. The labs have direct access to cardiovascular surgery suites. Cardiac interventionalists utilize the labs to offer a range of range of services including diagnostic cardiac catheterizations, balloon angioplasty, valvuloplasty, stent implantation, coil embolization, and hybrid procedures. The ability to do many of these procedures nonsurgically means shorter lengths of stay and less discomfort for patients.
Patients with heart rhythm abnormalities will receive the best available care in the region at our electrophysiology labs. Our pediatric electrophysiologists perform pacemaker implants, internal defibrillator implants, and ablation procedures. The lab is available 24 hours a day.
