BLK Children Heart Institute
The BLK Children’s Heart Institute is envisaged to be one of the leading Centers in the field of Pediatric Cardiology. A 25 bedded Pediatric Cardiac Surgical and Medical unit dedicated Pediatric Cardiac OT’s with several specialized programs: The Arterial Switch program; The Fetal Cardiology Program; Neonatal Cardiac Surgery Program and Interventional & Device Program make it one of the most specialized centers in North India. Pulmonary Hypertension Center of Excellence, Device and Pediatric Interventional Training Program make this a destination for Child Heart Diagnosis and Treatment.
Heart disease in children affects 1% of all live births. 1,75,000 children are born with this problem in India each year. 30,000 will not see their first birthday unless operated in the first year itself. It is the most common birth defect. Since there are only about 10,000 pediatric cardiac surgeries being performed in North India per year, BLK Children’s heart Institute looks forward to filling gap.
