Cardinal Glennon offers the region's only pediatric hybrid cardiac catheterization suite. This innovative technology allows a cardiac interventionalist to work with a heart surgeon to diagnose and fix a heart problem in the same room and in the same procedure. Having the ability to diagnose and treat problems in one procedure means safer care, faster healing and better recovery for our patients.
Traditionally, children with urgent problems discovered during a diagnostic procedure would move into an operating room for surgery during a separate procedure. By allowing the experts to work together in a suite designed for hybrid procedures, our patients can get the care they need quicker, without valuable minutes being used to transfer them to an operating suite.
For a cardiology referral, contact your child's primary care pediatrician or call the Dorothy and Larry Dallas Heart Center at SSM Cardinal Glennon at 314-577-5674.
