Inova's Structural Heart/Valve Disease Program
Learn About Our Doctors, Nurses, Care Coordinators and Expert Treatment Options.
Inova's Structural Heart/Valve Disease Program focuses on improving survival and quality of life for people with disease affecting the heart's internal functions – meaning the valves or walls separating the heart chambers. Many structural heart conditions are present at birth, though some can form later in life. Through the years, minimally invasive transcatheter therapies have revolutionized how we care for heart patients with these conditions, which previously required open heart surgery. Transcatheter procedures offer better outcomes, shorter length of stay and a more rapid recovery. The goal of the Structural Heart/Valve Disease program is to find the best possible treatment for each patient.
