Minimally Invasive Cardiovascular Procedures

In addition to open-heart surgery, we offer the latest robotic-assisted, minimally invasive, and transcatheter procedures to treat a variety of cardiovascular ailments. Here are a few examples of our advanced treatments.

Heart Valve Repair or Replacement

  • Robotic mitral valve repair: a robotic-assisted procedure that either strengthens the weakened mitral valve with supportive material or reshapes the valve

  • TAVR: a minimally invasive cardiac procedure for patients with aortic valve stenosis who are not eligible for open-heart surgery

  • MitraClip procedure: a less invasive treatment option for mitral regurgitation

Arrhythmia Procedures

  • Convergent procedure: a comprehensive cardiac ablation procedure for persistent atrial fibrillation and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (LSPAF)

  • WATCHMAN procedure: a device implantation that traps blood clots to prevent them from escaping the heart and causing a stroke

  • Pacemaker implantation: a procedure to implant advanced pacing technology to restore the heart's normal rhythm

Arterial Procedures

  • Robotic coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG): a robotic-assisted heart bypass procedure used to bolster blood flow, usually used to overcome blocked arteries

  • Vascular stent placement: the transcatheter implantation of a mesh stent that holds the artery in an open position

  • Laser and directional atherectomy: transcatheter methods used to open blocked arteries
