The nationally recognized UofL Health - Jewish Hospital - Valve Center of Excellence is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of cardiovascular specialists dedicated to delivering advanced, minimally invasive treatments for heart valve disease. Our team consists of interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, a program coordinator, and a nurse navigator that work together to determine the best treatments for each patient.
Since the beginning of our program in 2011, we have accurately diagnosed and treated over 1000 patients with innovative treatments including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Our heart valve team has performed over 7500 heart surgeries and performs over 650 heart bypass and valve procedures annually. As an academic medical health system, our team of expert physicians and nurses often provide education, mentoring, and professional consultation to providers and hospitals nationwide.
Accurately diagnosing valvular heart disease is the key to obtaining superior results for our patients so they can return to their normal activities while improving their quality of life. At UofL Health - Jewish Hospital, patients have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic testing to include echocardiography, three-dimensional computerized tomography scan, and cardiac magnetic imaging.
Two cutting-edge treatments being provided by the Heart Valve Team are transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and mitral valve repair through the use of a device called MitraClip.
