Julie A. Vincent, MD
Chief, Pediatric Cardiology

Each year, thousands of young patients benefit from the pioneering clinical and research work of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. With a distinguished world-class team of physicians specializing in pediatric cardiovascular disease, we have established a preeminent pediatric cardiology center -- the largest in New York State and one of the nation's largest. Patients come to us from across the country and around the world for our renowned care.

Our cardiologists provide care for a wide range of conditions and diseases that affect newborns, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults, including:

  • Congenital heart defects and anomalies
  • Fetal cardiac defects
  • Acquired heart disease
  • Arrhythmias
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Heart failure
  • Complex single ventricle anomalies

Your child's care begins with a complete medical history and a thorough evaluation using the most advanced technologies to fully understand the scope of the heart condition. Your child's healthcare team then collaborates to customize an individualized treatment plan to achieve the best outcome possible. Our program's seamless integration with the Division of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery ensures that patients who require surgery receive continuity of care throughout their treatment and recovery.

We also provide multidisciplinary care to adults with congenital heart defects. As techniques for treating congenital heart defects have improved over the years, so has the survival of children with these conditions, allowing them to reach adulthood. Some adults may need another surgery to revise an operation that was performed when they were children. Others may have previously undiagnosed congenital heart disease that did not cause any symptoms until they became adults. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital features experts who specialize in the care of both children and adults with all forms of congenital heart disease.

We are proud to be part of a major academic medical center with a large team of expert physicians and cardiac surgeons who share their perspectives and knowledge to address virtually every form of congenital and acquired heart disease. With more than 13,000 echocardiograms performed a year, over 1,200 diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterizations, and more than 700 cardiac surgeries, NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital offers decades of experience and the highest quality of care available in the world, with the best possible outcomes for our patients.
