Pediatric Open Heart Surgery is done to repair heart defects in children who are born with heart conditions that need surgery to improve the child’s future well-being. The youngest patients can undergo surgery for crucial defects when they are only a few days old, however, the defects have to be life-threateningly critical. Other infants can wait several months or even a few years to receive treatment, which is always the preferred option for all pediatricians when it is at all possible.
Pediatric Heart Surgery can be done for any variety of conditions a child may be born with, and the invasiveness of the procedure depends on the need the child has and the congenital heart defect present. Children can be anywhere from a few hours to years old when the procedure is done. It depends on their condition, and the urgency of the treatment needed.
Pediatric Cardiologists perform testing to determine how serious the congenital heart problem is, and when a procedure needs to be performed. It is generally a preference to wait a few months to a few years when possible to allow the child to mature before the procedure occurs. Pediatric Open Heart Surgery can be done immediately in the most critical conditions, and it can be lifesaving for some infants. Pediatric Cardiac Surgeons In India can do procedures for about 20% of what it would cost to do the same procedure in the US. This can be life-saving for families that don’t have insurance while living in a Western country. It also makes the procedure affordable to families who may not otherwise have access to the same treatment in their home country at an affordable price.
