Our New Cardiac Suite

Posted by Kylie Flament on 19 November 2015

We are delighted to announce that our brand new, state-of-the-art cardiac catheterisation suite opened this week.  A HUGE thank you to Sargents Pies Charitable Foundation who funded the $3.4 million upgrade.  Cardiac catheterisation is a lot like keyhole surgery, a less invasive option than open-heart surgery.  It isn't always suitable, depending on what is wrong with a child's heart, but when it is, it means a much faster recovery time, which is a good thing for kids and their families.  This new suite also offers us the ability to perform full surgeries if need be.

The Parramatta Sun interviewed the mother of one of our patients about it.  That story here.
