The Best in Adult Congenital Heart Disease Care from Penn Medicine and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Most adults with congenital heart disease are not getting the care they need. If you had a congenital heart defect diagnosed and repaired in childhood, it’s important to know your options when it comes to keeping your heart healthy throughout your life.

It’s recommended that anyone with a congenital heart condition be seen at least once as an adult, though complex conditions may require more frequent follow-up. If you’ve had a congenital defect repaired, including ventricular septal defects (VSD), atrial septal defects or tetralogy of Fallot, find a specialist that is right for you.
