Expert Pediatric Cardiac Care, Innovative Treatments for Children

Sibley Heart Center Photo TourYour child’s heart has its very own electrical impulse. It’s a perfectly complex, beautifully coordinated machine... that sometimes needs a little help.

Our team at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Sibley Heart Center has the precision to repair holes on an organ the size of a strawberry. We reset irregular beats, fix valves that are too narrow and repair arteries that are transposed.

We treat heart conditions from before birth to adulthood and perform an average of two pediatric heart surgeries a day. Each precious life receives the most appropriate combination of skills and experience.

Plus, we are one of the top pediatric cardiac programs in the country. Expert cardiac care and comprehensive family support has helped us rank No. 8 in the nation for pediatric heart care and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report.

      We are one of the highest volume pediatric heart centers in the country. Because we see so many children with heart conditions, we can provide dedicated cardiac staff, hospital space and technology to each child's care. 

      And our patient outcomes, or results, are better than the national average.
