The Next Generation of Heart Care
Minimally invasive procedures to treat the valves and blood flow within the heart, such as TAVR, MitraClipTM, TMVR, WatchmanTM and others like them, are the future of how cardiovascular surgeons can treat your heart.
Some advantages of minimally invasive procedures include:
- Eliminates the risks related to open-heart surgery and the need for a heart-lung machine.
- Generally only requires a small incision in your leg.
- People generally leave the hospital the day after.
- Quicker recovery times.
- Reduces infection risk.
