Carilion Clinic's Structural Heart and Valve Center provides specialized treatment, including evaluation, diagnosis and medical management, for patients with heart valve disease. We take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, with every patient benefiting from the collaborative expertise of a team of experts, including general cardiologists, structural interventional cardiologists, and heart surgeons with a special interest in structural and valvular heart disease. The team meets weekly to discuss each case and identify the best treatment strategy for every patient.
We're the first & only hospital in western Virginia able to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis with an effective, potentially life-saving new therapy, TAVR. This is a ground-breaking treatment for patients with aortic valves that do not open properly.
The one-time WATCHMAN procedure takes less than an hour under general anesthesia to seal the left atrial appendage (LAA) and prevent clots from escaping.
