What we do

Heart or lung surgery is scary at any age, but particularly for children, as well as their families. However, the good news is that pediatric cardiothoracic surgery is safer and more effective than ever. In fact, many young patients lead healthy, normal lives following surgery. At the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Cohen Children’s, we provide the most advanced heart and lung surgical procedures for infants, children, teens and adults with congenital heart disease. Our cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons work together to repair our patients’ hearts collaboratively and provide the best possible care.

Ivy and Maya Salooja are thriving after several surgeries at Cohen Children’s Medical Center filled their hearts—literally.
