For some patients, heart conditions can be controlled with medication. Certain drugs can lessen the symptoms associated with valve or structural heart disease, while decreasing the likelihood of further complications. These medicines can increase the heart’s pumping ability, control irregular heartbeats, relieve discomfort and prevent blood clots.
Patients who have more advanced heart disease may require surgical intervention to manage their condition. Our physicians are recognized leaders in both traditional and minimally invasive procedures.
Transcatheter, or percutaneous, procedures are performed in our catheterization lab by a team of highly skilled interventional cardiologists. For patients with heart valve disease or congenital heart defects that are too high risk for traditional surgical procedures, transcatheterization offers an alternative solution that uses minimally invasive techniques to repair mitral valves, replace aortic valves, to seal leaks and more.
