Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

Surya Hospitals’ Department of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery, provides specialist care for children with congenital and acquired cardiac diseases that require surgical operations. Our experienced team of pediatric cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and nurses is committed to providing our young patients with the best surgical treatment possible. We aspire to provide complete diagnosis, treatment, and management for children in need of pediatric heart surgery using cutting-edge technology and a child-friendly atmosphere.

Conditions Treated:

Our pediatric cardiac surgery section is prepared to treat a wide range of heart diseases in children. Among the most prevalent disorders we diagnose and treat are:

  • We specialize in surgical procedures for congenital heart defects, which are structural abnormalities of the heart that occur at birth. Among other things, the team undertakes procedures to treat ventricular septal defects (VSD), atrial septal defects (ASD), tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), transposition of the great arteries (TGA), and coarctation of the aorta
  • Valve abnormalities: We treat children with valve abnormalities such as mitral valve regurgitation, aortic valve stenosis, and pulmonary valve stenosis. To restore normal valve function and maximize cardiac performance, our staff performs valve repairs or replacements
  • Single Ventricle Physiology: We use single ventricle physiology to treat complex congenital heart disorders such as hypo-plastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and tricuspid atresia. To improve circulation and overall cardiac function, our team performs staged operations such as the Norwood procedure, Glenn procedure, and Fontan treatment
  • Acquired Heart problems: We conduct surgical operations in children with acquired heart problems that include rheumatic heart disease, infective endocarditis, and Kawasaki disease sequelae. Our team works together with our pediatric cardiologists to find the best surgical approach for each child


There are various reasons why a child may require pediatric heart surgery. These are some examples:

  • Children with critical congenital heart defects, such as transposition of the great arteries, severe aortic arctation, or hypoplastic left heart syndrome, may require immediate surgical intervention in the neonatal period to optimize survival and long-term outcomes
  • Children with symptomatic heart problems, such as severe valve regurgitation or stenosis, substantial shunts, or obstructive lesions, may require surgery to relieve symptoms and improve cardiac function
  • Failed Medical Management: If a child’s heart disease is not properly managed and if medicinal therapy is ineffective, surgery may be required to repair the underlying anatomical defects and give long-term comfort
  • Palliative operations: Children with complicated congenital heart defects, such as those with single ventricle physiology, who require stepwise palliative operations, may have surgical interventions to improve circulation and cardiac function

Treatments for Pediatric Cardiac Surgery:

Our department provides a variety of surgical treatments and procedures for children with heart problems. These are some examples:

  • Corrective procedures: We undertake corrective procedures to repair or reconstruct the heart, such as septal defect closure, cardiac valve repair, arterial switch operations, and complex congenital heart defect repair
  • Heart Valve Repairs and Replacements: We repair and replace heart valves and improve cardiac performance by restoring normal valve function. Depending on the child’s needs, we use both mechanical and biological valves
  • Palliative Surgery: We perform phased palliative procedures such as the Norwood surgery, Glenn procedure, and Fontan treatment in children with single ventricle physiology to enhance circulation and overall heart function
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: When necessary, we use minimally invasive surgical techniques to reduce scarring, and postoperative pain, and speed recovery. Small incisions, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), and robotic-assisted surgery are examples of these approaches
  • In other circumstances, we work with our interventional cardiologists to execute hybrid procedures that mix surgical and interventional approaches. Individualized treatment strategies and excellent outcomes for complex heart disorders are possible with this strategy
