The Phoenix Heart Structural Heart program is using catheter-based therapies to treat patients who are considered too high risk for open heart surgery. Our experts work closely with teams that specialize in these therapies. Your interventional cardiologist will evaluate your options based on age, general health/history and risk level for surgery. The options will be fully explained and discussed so that you can make the most informed decision regarding your healthcare.
The catheter–based procedures that we specialize in include:
Transcather aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for aortic valve stenosis.
Watchman left atrial appendage closure which is used for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation (A-Fib).
Mitraclip for mitral valve repair in patients with mitral regurgitation.
