Nevada is one of the best places in the United States for a child to undergo heart surgery.

The Children’s Heart Center Nevada has an array of specialists in fetal cardiology, adults with congenital heart disease, electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, and cardiac surgery. Our specialists come from Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, UCSF, and USC.

We have created a place where the results for open-heart surgery are better than the national average. Our success for all heart surgeries, whether open heart or not, is now 99%.

All of this makes Nevada one of the best places in the United States for children to undergo heart surgery. In fact, our patients travel from other states for care in Nevada.
