Open-Heart and Cardiothoracic Surgery
Our skilled team performs valve repairs and replacements, coronary artery bypass and other lifesaving procedures.
Electrophysiology and Radiofrequency Ablation
We treat heart rhythm disorders, like AFib, with the most effective and least invasive techniques possible.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) through cardiac catheterization allows us to quickly improve blood flow to your heart.
Heart Failure and CardioMEMS Program
We can help you manage and minimize the effects of heart failure so you can live life to the fullest.
Advanced Imaging and Preventive Care
At the first symptom — or even before — we’ll work to avoid the development of conditions that can impact your long-term wellness.
Structural Heart Program
We specialize in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), patent foramen ovale (PFO) and atrial septal defect (ASD) repair, and left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) procedures.

If you’re having symptoms like dizziness, syncope (passing out), chest pain or fatigue, you could benefit from an evaluation in our Structural Heart Clinic. Our board-certified cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists evaluate and treat structural heart diseases like:
- Aortic valve stenosis: the aortic valve opening becomes narrowed, reducing blood flow (can be treated with transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR)
- Patent foramen ovale and atrial septal defect: both are holes between the upper chambers of the heart, each with different causes
- Left atrial appendage occlusion: clots may form in the left atrial appendage (a small appendage on the heart) in patients experiencing atrial fibrillation (AFib) and can lead to a stroke
