Inova's Structural Heart/Valve Disease Program focuses on improving survival and quality of life for people with disease affecting the heart's internal structures – meaning the valves or walls separating the heart chambers. The goal the program is to find the best possible treatment for each patient – whether through surgery or using a minimally invasive procedure.
Our comprehensive approach includes review of each patient’s history, imaging, risk factors by an integrated team including interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and a cardiac imaging specialist to determine the most optimal approach for your condition.
We offer minimally invasive therapies that have revolutionized how we care for patients who previously required open heart surgery. These catheter-based procedures offer better outcomes, shorter length of stay and a more rapid recovery. For those requiring a traditional surgical approach, we have a highly experienced cardiac surgery team.
