When a child is born with a heart defect or suffers from a heart condition, they may require heart surgery. While such surgical procedures can improve or save a child’s life, there are serious risks involved. Pediatric heart surgery refers to any open-heart operation that is performed in order to improve or eliminate a child’s congenital heart defect or disease. Unfortunately, when surgeons and other healthcare professionals act negligently, recklessly, or carelessly, a pediatric heart surgery patient can suffer fatal injuries.
