Clinics

Clinical care is provided to adolescents, newborns and infants, and even to unborn children, through our Fetal Cardiology Service. Referrals to these clinics are made by your local doctor, obstetrician or paediatrician, depending on the circumstances.

 

Baby SarahCardiology / Congenital Heart Disease Clinic

At this clinic we provide assessment and management of children with suspected or confirmed heart disease.

 

Fetal Cardiology (NSW Fetal Echocardiography Service)

Our Fetal Cardiology Service provides echocardiographic assessment and management of the fetal heart where heart disease is considered possible.

 

Arrhythmia Clinic

This clinic assesses infants and children of all ages for the diagnosis and management of all heart rhythm problems including the non-inherited arrhythmias (such as SVT and Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome) and inherited arrhythmias (such as Long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome, CPVT and ARVC).  Children with devices such as permanent pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are also seen in this clinic in conjunction with pacemaker clinic earlier in the day.  Children can be assessed for the suitability of progressing to an electrophysiological study with ablation, potentially a curative procedure for conditions such as SVT. 

As this is the only paediatric arrhythmia clinic in New South Wales it provides an important teaching role for Paediatric Cardiologists in training.  This clinic also proudly participates in the National Genetic Heart Disease Registry, coordinated through the Centenary Institute Research of Life, aiming to deliver significant research breakthroughs in the management of paediatric arrhythmia.

FACTSHEET - The Inherited Arrhythmia Clinic

 

Adolescent Congenital Heart Clinic

Generally suitable for those aged 1319, this clinic specialises in the assessment and management of teenagers and young adults with known or suspected heart disease. Transition to appropriate adult cardiological care is also provided.

 

Pacemaker Clinic

In this clinic, we care for children with a variety of heart conditions who require a permanent pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Highly trained cardiac technicians supervised by the heart rhythm cardiologist check and programme these devices. This process is painlessly performed via a remote-control programming device. The clinic normally runs on Wednesday morning.

 

Outreach Clinics

We also run outreach clinics in country NSW, and Asia-Pacific countries to provide treatment by our skilled cardiology and surgery teams to children who may otherwise not have access in remote parts of Australia and across the world.
