At ACIBADEM, we understand that every heartbeat matters, especially when it's the heart of a child. We don't just treat heart conditions; we touch lives, change futures, and bring smiles back to families, with a proven track record of over 30 years, treatment of more than 15,000 patients, and a stellar success rate exceeding 95%.
When operating on a heart as tiny as a walnut, the complexities of pediatric cardiac surgery are immense. Despite this, it is a necessity for many children born with heart conditions. Alarming but true, nearly 1 in every 100 live births is associated with some form of congenital heart defect, ranging from mild to life-threatening. Just about a third of these cases need immediate medical attention or surgery within days of birth.
Once, a baby born with a severe cardiac malformation had slim chances of survival. Today, the outlook has significantly improved with advancements in medical technology and techniques. We are now able to restore normal heart functions and promise a healthy life for over 90% of affected children. ACIBADEM Children's Heart Center has been at the forefront of these life-altering innovations. Housing some of Turkey's and the region's most eminent pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery specialists, our center provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment solutions for all types of cardiac conditions.
Advanced Diagnostics for Early Detection
Imagine being able to diagnose a heart defect even before a child is born and having a treatment plan ready in advance. This isn't a dream but a reality at ACIBADEM, thanks to tools such as Electrocardiography (ECG), Chest X-ray, Echocardiography, Trans Esophageal Echocardiography (TEE), Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Computerized Tomography (CT).
Our progress in prenatal imaging technologies, including fetal echocardiography, allows us to leave no stone unturned with our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools.
Comprehensive Pediatric Heart Care and Cutting-Edge Surgical Options
We take pride in our ability to offer non-invasive treatment options, such as cardiac catheterization, that eliminate the need for open surgery. This approach significantly reduces pain, recovery time, and hospital stay for our little patients.
When surgery is required, our Children's Heart Center performs all types of pediatric cardiac operations, including complex congenital and neonatal heart surgeries. After surgery, patients are cared for in our pediatric intensive care unit, equipped with the latest monitoring systems and staffed by experienced specialists and nurses.
Committed to Saving Little Hearts
The key to our success lies in our multidisciplinary approach. At ACIBADEM Bakirkoy and ACIBADEM Atakent hospitals in Istanbul, our teams are more than just medical professionals — they're life-changers. These multidisciplinary teams comprise experienced physicians in various fields who have dedicated their lives to understanding and catering to the unique needs of little hearts.
Choosing ACIBADEM means choosing an ally with a proven track record and a commitment that goes beyond mere duty. Each year, we treat over 600 patients from around the globe, consistently maintaining a success rate of over 95%.
Our mission is to provide exceptional care and to ensure that children with heart disorders, who were once considered too complex for other heart centers, get a chance at a healthy life. We're not just about healing children's hearts; we're about giving them — and their families — a brighter future. At ACIBADEM, healing is at the heart of everything we do.
Join us at ACIBADEM, where hearts are healed, hope is restored, and lives are transformed.
