Specialty surgical treatment options we offer

Based on your surgical risk, diagnostic testing, and individual evaluation, our structural heart team may recommend surgery as one of your best options. In those cases, we offer specialty procedures that include:

Heart valve surgery

At our hospital, diseased heart valves may require open surgical intervention with our experienced cardiothoracic surgeons and cardiovascular staff.

Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO)

This surgery is a first-of-its-kind, proven alternative to long-term warfarin (anticoagulant medication) therapy for stroke-risk reduction in people who have non-valvular AFib.

Mitral regurgitation treatments

If you are considered to be high- or prohibitive-risk for conventional valve repair or replacement surgery, we now offer you a catheter-based alternative.
