Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia

The Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia team at the MUSC Children’s Heart Center excels in the full range of pediatric diagnostic, interventional catheterization, and surgical procedures for acquired and congenital cardiac diseases. More than 400 major operations are performed annually. The program treats patients from birth, through adolescence and, in the case of congenital heart disease, into adulthood. Our comprehensive surgery program is the only one in South Carolina, and, with an overall 30-day survival rate of 99 percent, ranks among the best in the world. The number of surgical procedures we perform has steadily increased every year since 1996 through ever growing regional, national and international referrals, with results that rank among the very best programs; for example, these include a 99 percent 30-day survival rate for all surgical procedures and a 94 percent discharge survival rate for the Norwood procedure for hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
