A multidisciplinary team of University of Minnesota Physicians' cardiologists, surgeons, intensivists, nurses and other medical specialists at The Heart Center at University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital provide care to children who have congenital and acquired heart defects. Patients with such conditions can make appointments with University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital pediatric cardiologists at four clinics in the Twin Cities metro area. We offer a variety of state-of-the-art services such as ablation, catheterization, surgery and transplantation, as well as ventricular-assist device implementation. We have a hybrid catheterization lab and operating room suite which combines surgery and catheter-based treatments.

Physicians at The Heart Center performed the world’s first heart transplant on an infant, implanted the first Berlin Heart® EXCOR® Pediatric ventricular-assist device in Minnesota, and conducted the first Stage I hybrid Norwood in the Upper Midwest.
