Heart Valve Center
The Heart Valve Center offers the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure for severe aortic stenosis and the MitraClip procedure for severe mitral regurgitation. Our specialized treatment team will perform diagnostic tests, evaluate your condition, and determine the best treatment within a few days of your initial exam.
If healthy, the heart's valves open and close precisely as the heart pumps blood throughout our bodies, and allow the flow of blood in only one direction. Heart valve disease is a form of structural heart disease that occurs when a heart's valves are not working as they should, preventing the heart from providing sufficient circulation to the body. Heart valve problems can be life threatening, and they are one of the leading causes of congestive heart failure.
Signs and symptoms of heart valve disease often aren't visible until a person is middle-aged or older, and in many cases develop very slowly. Causes include calcification or degeneration of valve tissue, heart attacks from coronary artery disease, infections or conditions present from birth.
