Advanced options to fit your lifestyle

Surgery can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Our care team will work with you to understand your options and help you make the decision that is right for you.

  • Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery: Minimally invasive surgery produces a smaller incision, smaller scarring, a shorter hospital stay, less chance of infection and a faster recovery.

  • Maze procedure and mitral valve repair: Performed during mitral valve repair surgery, this procedure is highly effective in curing atrial fibrillation. Many Maze patients no longer need to take long-term blood-thinning medications. 

  • Aortic valve surgery: Done in conjunction with open-heart surgery, our affiliated cardiothoracic surgeons perform aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement.

  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement therapy (TAVR): Interventional cardiologists replace a diseased aortic heart valve by placing a balloon-expandable heart valve into the body through a catheter inserted through a small incision in the thigh.
