Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician

Our cardiologists will evaluate your heart failure to determine if the VAD fits your needs. Our goal is to develop the best long- and short-term treatment for your heart disease.


You may benefit from a Ventricular Assist Device if one or both of the large chambers of your heart don’t pump well and medical treatment is no longer effective. Powered by a battery you carry with you, this pump sits inside your body and helps your large heart chambers pump blood. We have an educational program for you and your family so you know what to expect after the pump is functioning.
