The Harley Street Clinic is the only independent hospital in the UK specialising in paediatric cardiac treatments.
We offer a full range of treatments and the service is led by Medical Director Professor Marc de Leval. It is widely recognised that we have developed this work to a very advanced level and our paediatric cardiologists are some of the world’s leading consultants in this field. Working within our cardiac facilities and paediatric critical care unit, they are experts in heart conditions – particularly congenital heart defects – in babies, infants and children. The Hospital links up with the charity Chain of Hope to provide heart surgery and treatment for children from overseas.
Joel had a rare heart condition
He went to his GP aged 10 with a cold and ear ache that wouldn’t clear, and a routine check of his chest revealed he had a major heart murmur. He was diagnosed a rare congenital heart condition called subaortic stenosis. If left untreated, it can lead to heart arrhythmias, heart failure, collapse and even death.
