The first heart valve surgery was performed here, and we continue to lead the way in developing innovative treatments for patients with even the most challenging and complicated valve conditions. Our team specializes in interventional treatments for patients who do not traditionally qualify for conventional open heart surgery, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
The Heart & Vascular Center is one of the largest in the U.S., treating more than 54,000 patients and performing more than 1,100 procedures annually.
