Preventive Cardiology Programs
Pediatric Heart Center staff members use a multidisciplinary approach to treat children and teens with hyperlipidemia (high level of fats in the blood, e.g., high cholesterol) and high blood pressure.
Pediatric subspecialty physicians collaborate to design a treatment program for each patient. The program is comprehensive and many hospital departments and services work together to provide care.
