Pediatric Cardiac Ablation

Cardiac ablation is a treatment for arrhythmias. The goal of ablation is to destroy the area of the heart tissue that is causing the abnormal heart rhythm. Our electrophysiology team has more than 20 years of experience performing ablation procedures on children.

Cardiac Catheterization

We perform hundreds of catheterization procedures every year. We treat children with the most complex heart, blood vessel, and valve conditions. We have one of the highest success rates for cardiac catheterization procedures. Learn more about Cardiac Catheterization.


Our pediatric electrophysiologists perform ablations and other procedures to correct abnormal heart rhythms, with a success rate close to 98 percent. Learn more about Cardiac Electrophysiology.


The pediatric heart experts at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., provide advanced care for unborn babies, children and young adults with heart conditions.
