Conditions we treat
Structural heart disease may be present at birth, or it can develop later in life. We use life-changing treatments to repair damaged heart valves, walls, muscle or tissue. Addressing structural heart issues can reduce symptoms such as weakness and shortness of breath, which not only can improve your quality of life, but also help prolong it.
We treat a variety of conditions for patients including:
Aortic stenosis - Is the stiffening or narrowing of the aortic valve. Calcium build up is the most common cause. Aortic stenosis usually affects elderly patients with other medical risk factors which makes them better candidates for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR).
Heart valve disease
Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) - Occurs when patients are diagnosed with an opening, or hole, in the heart that did not close after birth. This birth defect can cause problems later in life, including stroke, and affect the control of blood flow between heart chambers.
