Howard Rosenfeld, MD, has been evaluating and treating children with heart disease at our hospital for more than 14 years. He is an expert in the use of ultrasound for non-invasive imaging of the heart for children of all ages. He provides invaluable information to the cardiac surgeons through intra-operative ultrasound imaging of the heart and directs the cardiac fetal program where prenatal diagnoses and treatment are provided. Dr. Rosenfeld evaluates and treats children who are born with heart problems (congenital cardiac disease) as well as children who develop heart problems later in life due to infections, abnormal heart rhythms, trauma, or inflammation.
Heart defects are among the most common birth defects, and are the leading cause of birth defect-related deaths. More than 35,000 infants, 1 of every 125, are born with heart defects each year in the United States. Half the children requiring surgical repair of a heart defect now undergo surgery before turning 1.
