Pediatric Cardiology - Heart Care for Children

Pediatric Cardiology

For any child with a heart condition, the experienced staff of the Spartanburg Regional Heart Center brings together the skills of dedicated specialists in heart care for children. Through a special partnership with Greenville Children’s Hospital, board-certified specialists in pediatrics and in pediatric cardiology offer children and their families the convenience of expert outpatient and inpatient heart care—right here in Spartanburg.

Whether a child is in the womb or is a young adult, our experts offer a range of testing, monitoring and treatment. Some tests we use to diagnose heart conditions in children:

  • Echocardiography for unborn babies and for children, a simple test that uses sound waves to create an image of the heart
  • Electrocardiograms (ECGs, or EKGs), a simple test to measure the electrical activity of the heart
  • 24-hour ambulatory ECGs (Holter monitor), an ECG test where a child wears a monitor at home, school or other activities. It records heart activity over a 24-hour period.
  • 30-day cardiac-event monitors, a monitor that a child wears day and night while at home, school or other activities.
  • Treadmill exercise testing, a test done in the hospital where staff monitor the heart while the child walks or runs on a treadmill.

Expanding our expertise

In addition to the Heart Center’s pediatric heart experts, we are also part of the Children’s Heart Program of South Carolina. This a group of children’s hospitals dedicated to diagnosing and caring for our communities’ kids. Through this relationship, we also work closely with the children’s heart experts at the Medical University of South Carolina, especially for those who need procedures like heart catheterizations or heart surgery.
