Parents seeking the best cardiac care for their children, close to home, now have an option to visit with a pediatric cardiologist in Manahawkin. Here children can be evaluated, monitored, treated, and referred for additional subspecialty care and advanced treatment options if needed.
The doctors at Deborah Specialty Physicians have expertise in diagnosing and managing a wide range of cardiac conditions that may arise in children including:
- Heart murmurs
- Chest pain
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- Syncope or fainting
- Congenital heart disease (newly diagnosed or previously treated through surgery or interventional catheterization)
- Assessment of cardiac risk related to family history
- Preventive cardiology, and evaluation and treatment of hypertension and hyperlipidemia
In addition to diagnosing and managing cardiac conditions in children in the outpatient setting, Deborah Specialty Pediatric Physicians have access to a vast network of cardiac specialists at area hospitals. When a full team – including surgeons, interventional cardiologists, heart rhythm specialists, heart failure and cardiomyopathy specialists, and advance practice nurses – is needed, our Pediatric Cardiology team can quickly and effectively connect your child with the specific care required.
During your child’s appointment with the pediatric cardiology team, a thorough medical history will be taken, and a thorough physical exam will be performed. Typically, children will receive an EKG and, if needed, an echocardiogram. Should additional testing be required, your pediatric cardiologist will make those arrangements, convenient to your schedule and based on your child’s specific medical needs.
Your pediatric cardiologist will help you manage any on-going medical issues facing your child, and can also be instrumental in helping to prevent cardiac disease secondary to conditions such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Heart disease is usually thought of as an “old age” problem, but more and more young people and teenagers are presenting with early and troubling signs of heart disease. Proactive monitoring and management can prevent more serious problems later in life.
