Children’s of Mississippi’s specialty clinic in Tupelo welcomes pediatric cardiologist Dr. Kalyl Cable. Dr. Cable joins pediatric cardiologist Dr. Frank Osei in serving children with heart conditions in north Mississippi. About one baby in every 100 is born with a heart defect, and these can range from mild to critical. These children require treatment from cardiologists throughout their lives.
Children’s of Mississippi specialty clinic, located at 1150 S. Green St., provides outpatient screening and consultation for heart-related concerns for area children. The clinic offers a wide range of services including electrocardiogram, echocardiography, stress testing and tilt table testing. Pediatric cardiologists evaluate children with a wide range of common concerns including murmurs, chest pain and fainting, and care for and monitor children with complex heart disease.
Drs. Cable and Osei work with maternal-fetal medicine experts and obstetricians to provide cardiac screening through fetal echocardiography to diagnose heart disease or arrhythmias before a child is born. They also provide inpatient evaluations at North Mississippi Medical Center for infants and children with cardiac concerns.
A native of St. Kitts and Nevis, Dr. Cable earned bachelor’s degrees in medicine and surgery at the University of the West Indies at St. Augustine, Trinidad.
