Pediatric Cardiology Procedures

We prioritize your child’s health by offering a wide range of in-office procedures.

Our goal is to streamline your experience, serving as your one-stop shop for pediatric cardiac care. By providing diagnostic tests and treatments within our practice, we ensure prompt results, clear communication, and exceptional care.

Available In-Office Procedures:

We’re equipped to perform a variety of procedures right here in our office, saving you time and ensuring a seamless approach to cardiac care. These procedures include:


This ultrasound imaging technique widely assesses the structure and function of the heart. It provides real-time images of the heart’s chambers, valves, and blood flow patterns, aiding in the diagnosis of congenital heart defects and evaluating treatment effectiveness


Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)

An ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, helping detect abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), conduction abnormalities, and signs of cardiac stress or damage. We routinely perform ECGs in our offices.


Fetal Echocardiogram

This specialized ultrasound exam evaluates the fetal heart’s structure and function during pregnancy, recommended when there are risk factors for congenital heart defects or abnormalities detected on routine prenatal ultrasound.


Holter Monitoring

This procedure involves wearing a portable ECG device (holter monitor) to record heart activity over an extended period, typically 24 to 48 hours, useful for evaluating heart rhythm during daily activities.


Event Monitoring

Similar to Holter monitoring, event monitoring involves wearing a portable device that records heart rhythm data. However, event monitors are used for longer durations (up to 30 days) and are activated by the patient when they experience symptoms, allowing for targeted recording during specific events or episodes, useful for evaluating heart rhythms for longer periods.

Commonly Referred Procedures:

If necessary, additional testing, diagnostic imaging, or evaluations are referred to one of our many associated health systems. These include but are not limited to:

lab test

Laboratory Order

A medical procedure that involves testing a sample of blood, urine, or other substances to help determine a diagnosis, plan treatment, check treatment progress, or monitor the disease over time.


Exercise Stress Test

This test monitors the child’s heart rate and rhythm during physical activity, usually on a treadmill or stationary bike, helping assess the heart’s response to exercise and may reveal hidden arrhythmias or signs of reduced cardiac function.



This test uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film or digital media.


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

A noninvasive medical imaging test producing detailed images of almost every internal structure in the human body, useful for assessing various heart conditions.

ct scan

Computed Tomography Scan (CT Scan)

A diagnostic imaging procedure using X-rays and computer technology to produce detailed images of the inside of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, organs, and blood vessels.


Cardiac Catheterization

This procedure helps diagnose and treat certain heart conditions by threading thin, flexible tubes (catheters) through blood vessels to the heart, allowing for interventions such as balloon angioplasty, valve repair, or closure of congenital defects.

blood pressure cuff

Tilt Table Test

This procedure helps determine the cause of syncope by creating changes in posture from lying to standing and evaluating changes in blood pressure and heart activity.
