Heart Valve Repair and Replacement

Each time your heart beats, your heart valves open and close, allowing blood to flow into, through, and out of your heart in one direction. When the heart valves begin to fail, the heart beats harder to compensate for the reduced blood flow, leading to heart valve disease. In this case, the valve will need to be repaired or replaced.

At St. Luke’s Health, our team gives hope to patients in need of valve repair or replacement. Our team of endovascular experts includes internationally recognized cardiovascular interventionalists and cardiac surgeons who continue to redefine the standard of care for patients worldwide. With access to state-of-the-art, specialized equipment, we are able to operate on unstable, extremely complex valve cases

TAVR & Heart Valve Procedures

We offer the latest valve repair and replacement procedures, including:

  • Balloon Valvuloplasty
  • Bioprosthetic Valve Replacement
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
  • Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR)

Rewriting the Standard of Care

We were one of the first in the world to perform percutaneous valve replacement under local anesthesia, conducted over 10 clinical trials for thoracic and abdominal aneurysm repair, and participated in all carotid stent trials. Additionally, we have pioneered and popularized TAVR fast-track protocols that allow for same-day procedure under local anesthesia with next-day discharge. As a world leader in redefining percutaneous valve repair, patients worldwide come to our hospital for these procedures every day.
