Nonsurgical cardiology offers our pediatric patients procedures that can diagnose and treat heart conditions in the least invasive manner possible. Procedures include cardiac catherization, echocardiography, holter and EKG monitoring, stress testing and pacemaker and defibrillator programming.

Definitions:

  • Echocardiography is the use of ultrasound to examine and measure the structure and functioning of the heart and to diagnose abnormalities and disease.
  • Holter monitoring is a portable device that makes a continuous record of electrical activity of the heart and that can be worn by an ambulatory patient during the course of daily activities for the purpose of detecting fleeting episodes of abnormal heart rhythms.
  • EKG monitoring records the changes of electrical potential occurring during the heartbeat used especially in diagnosing abnormalities of heart action.

Oncology

Oncology is the study of tumors. A tumor is an abnormal benign or malignant mass of tissue that is not inflammatory, arises without obvious cause from cells of preexistent tissue, and possesses no physiological function. Benign tumors are of a mild type or character that do not threaten health or life. Malignant tumors lead to deterioration and often lead to death. Cancer is a malignant tumor of potentially unlimited growth that expands locally by invasion and systemically by metastasis.

Our pediatric hematologists and oncologists are equipped to treat a wide range of cancers and blood disorders affecting children, including leukemia, brain tumors, anemias and sickle cell disease. We recognize that children are not adults and need their own special treatment.
