Treatments

At Children's National, we treat the whole child, paying special attention to both their physical and emotional needs.

Here are some of the particular treatments we use to care for our patients.

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a specialized procedure in which a long, flexible tube (catheter) is inserted into a blood vessel (usually in the leg) and guided into the heart, allowing a close look at the structures inside.

Heart Surgery

Our pediatric heart surgeons provide the full spectrum of heart surgery services, caring for children with even the most complex heart conditions.
