Adult Congenital Heart Defects

Some of these patients with congenital heart defects were treated as children at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, and continue in the care of the program for ongoing assessment and management. Others come to us as new patients or as adults with congenital heart defects seeking ongoing care.
