Among the main specialized focuses of the department are heart diseases. When detecting heart defects before birth, doctors maintain cooperation with gynecologists. The pediatric cardiologic outpatient clinic covers the whole range of treatment of heart defects in children. The diagnostic possibilities include echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), 12-channel ECG, long-term ECG, 24-hour blood pressure monitoring and tests during exercising. Having a high qualification, the pediatric cardiologic team is ready to offer the comprehensive treatment of all heart diseases in childhood and adolescence.
Another priority of the department is neuropediatrics, which deals with the treatment of diseases of the brain, nervous system and muscles. There is offered the entire spectrum of pediatric neurology, including complex systemic diseases. Particular attention is paid to phased diagnostics. In addition to electrophysiological functional diagnostics (EEG), imaging and MRI, the doctors of the department use all the possibilities of modern genetic diagnostics.
