Congenital Heart Disease Research
Clinical trials at Cedars-Sinai are helping doctors all over the world improve care for congenital heart disease. We are often among the first programs offering new procedures, giving patients access to innovative therapies.
Minimally Invasive Heart Procedures
We treat many congenital heart conditions, including complex structural problems, with cardiac catheterization. This minimally invasive technique helps us deliver precise care that's gentler on the body and helps patients recover quickly.
