Heart Murmur: How We Treat


How are heart murmurs treated?

The specialists in our pediatric cardiology clinic are trained to differentiate innocent murmurs (which mean your child is perfectly healthy) from those more serious murmurs that may be a sign of a heart problem. Because murmurs are so common and frequently harmless, many families will be reassured after a thorough physical examination of your child.

Patients with more concerning heart murmurs will receive further evaluation. If a heart problem is found, our pediatric cardiology team will help create a treatment plan designed specifically for your child. Some options include medication, electrophysiology, minimally invasive cardiac catheterization and surgery.

If your child has been diagnosed with a specific condition that causes a heart murmur, please look over the list of Conditions We Treat to learn more.
