Genetic Heart Disease in Children

Cardiovascular Genetics Services

For More Information

Duke's pediatric cardiologists and cardiovascular geneticists diagnose and treat inherited heart diseases, like certain arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, heart malformations, and other conditions that can cause sudden cardiac death. We work closely with medical geneticists and genetic counselors to provide individualized evaluation, genetic testing, and guidance for children with genetic heart diseases and their families. Using advanced methods, we personalize the entire process so that you can make informed health care decisions for your child, his or her siblings, and the rest of your family.
