In step with his philosophy, we are committed to helping children from all over the world – from the smallest infants who would not survive more than a few days without lifesaving heart surgery – to teenagers suffering from chronic illness.
The youngest cardiac patients, from newborn infants to adolescents, require expert paediatric cardiologists and an experienced paediatric support team. Our paediatric cardiology team is committed to delivering the most compassionate care to children and support to parents. Our state-of-the-art Hybrid Cath Lab enables us to offer the latest minimally invasive procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of paediatric cardiac conditions. We utilize cutting-edge diagnostic tools to detect congenital heart disease, heart valve problems, structural and functional heart disease, and to conduct check-ups after heart surgery.

Our paediatric endocrinology team treats many conditions including obesity, diabetes type 1 and 2, polycystic ovarian syndrome, adrenal gland disorders, premature and delayed puberty, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, pituitary gland tumours, and rare congenital disorders such as Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, and more.
