I have ebsteins anomaly (cardiac condition)

I have ebsteins anomaly, wolfe parkinsons white tachicardia (treated by ablation therapy in 1996 with no recurrence), patent ductus arteriosis (treated by device closure in 2004 succesfully) and will one day require a valve replacement , however I really want to join the army and train to work as an army medic, would my condition prevent me from being able to do this?
