Congenital Heart Surgery

Programs and Services

For decades, we’ve helped children born with congenital heart disease (CHD) live longer, healthier lives by revolutionizing the way these conditions are diagnosed and treated. Today, there are more adults living with CHD than children and they all need the same level of specialized care that they received during childhood. It’s why we’ve specially designed a program just for adults, backed by the Nation’s #1 pediatric heart center and with congenital heart experts who continue to blaze new trails in the field every day.

Texas Children’s Heart Transplant Program is one of the largest pediatric heart transplant programs in the nation. Since 1984, Texas Children’s surgeons have performed more than 500 heart transplants in children, a benchmark reached by only a few programs in the United States. The program is backed by all the resources of Texas Children’s Heart Center, which is ranked No. 1 in the nation for pediatric cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report.

The Heart Center Tissue Bank (HCTB) at Texas Children's Hospital is the largest pediatric tissue bank in the Texas Medical Center and houses a variety of tissue samples of patients with congenital heart defects. Our mission is to advance the research of congenital heart defects by fostering research collaborations with investigators not only within Texas Children’s Hospital, but globally.
