Specialized Care

Inova offers patients access to the most innovative treatments and technologies to cover all cardiovascular care dimensions.

Robust Treatments for Advanced Heart Failure and Heart Transplant

Patients are diagnosed with advanced heart failure (congestive heart failure) when they no longer respond to traditional therapies and symptom management. Inova treats these patients with leading-edge clinical trials and therapeutic interventions, from home-based monitoring for better medication management to mechanical circulatory support using ventricular assist devices (VAD/LVAD) and heart transplantation. Our physicians are board-certified in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology, with the expertise to afford our patients the best possible options.

Innovative Treatments for Atrial fibrillation (AFib)

Our doctors treat atrial fibrillation according to each patient's unique symptoms and medical history. Treatments include medication, cardioversion, several different ablation procedures and techniques, various pacemaker options, and innovative interventional procedures. Additionally, IHVI is proud to be an approved research site for the WATCHMAN™ LAAC Device for stroke risk reduction in AFib patients.

Minimally Invasive Heart Procedures

IHVI is recognized as a high-performance center for minimally invasive valve replacement for both adults and children.
