The adult congenital heart clinic offers identification and management of congenital heart disease. Patients who are seen by a pediatric cardiologist will transition to our team’s care during young adulthood. Nearly all patients need follow-up throughout adult life. Some may eventually need additional surgery to correct complications that arise over time.

It is important that the very best care is available for adults with congenital heart defects. Given the complexity of these heart defects and their implications, we strive to offer the very best care with physicians and staff in centers which have specialized training and a focus on adult congenital heart disease.

Routine follow up allows prevention, early identification, and appropriate management of these problems. The Adult Congenital Heart Clinic at Primary Children’s Hospital, in association with the University of Utah, is the only center in the Intermountain West which has a cardiologist and cardiothoracic surgeons that are board certified in congenital heart disease. Our team also includes members who are skilled in special radiology procedures for individuals with congenital heart disease.
