Valve Clinic Services

St. Joseph’s Heart & Vascular Institute has a legacy of commitment and dedication to providing the best possible care for our patients. Our Advanced Heart Disease Clinic (Valve Clinic) consists of a multidisciplinary team dedicated to treating patients with various stages of heart disease, from advanced procedures including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), to disease management.

Once referred to St. Joseph's Valve Clinic, our team of experienced and highly skilled physicians and staff will help develop a plan of care for patients with advanced cardiac disease. For those who qualify for TAVR, the need for an open chest procedure is markedly reduced which translates into faster recovery, less pain, and overall improved outcomes for high-risk populations.
