Our department of Paediatric Cardiac Sciences offers the most compassionate, comprehensive and modern care for children with congenital heart defects. The department has some of the most well-known professionals in the country with extensive experience in their respective fields.

Many heart defects in infants and children manifest early, and if diagnosed precisely at the earliest, there is a chance for the child to lead a normal and unrestricted life. Moreover, many of the defects can be fatal if not treated in the first few days of life. We ensure precise diagnosis of the defect and then operating upon the baby in the best environment by some of the safest and best hands in the country. We have the safest critical care environment to take care of the tiny tots in a compassionate environment after the surgery. Our round-the-clock critical care team comprises of leaders and team members who are known for their expertise and skills in the country to give unparalleled attention to the baby in the most critical phase of his/her life.
