Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

The Comprehensive CDH Care Program at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital is dedicated to caring for patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). CDH is a complex condition that often requires ongoing care throughout a child’s development. Because of this complexity, a team approach with doctors and nurses from multiple specialties is necessary for the best possible success.

From prenatal diagnosis, to neonatal surgical care, through the school-age years, our continual support by the same team of SLUCare Physician Group experts provides children with an optimal level of care that promotes their overall well-being as they grow and develop.
