Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Treatment

Comprehensive and Lifelong Treatment

Today, about 1 percent of the population is born with a congenital heart defect. Our joint program of Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute and the Heart Institute at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital allows us to provide comprehensive care for the growing population of adults with ACHD. Our team works closely with other cardiologists in the community to ensure you receive high-quality care. To learn more about our program or receive a referral, call 954-265-2243 or 877-265-2243.There are approximately 1 million adults with adult congenital heart disease.
