    Our team includes general cardiologists, interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, all with advanced training and expertise in structural heart and valve disease. We treat patients with all diseases of the aortic, mitral or tricuspid valve, from the routine to the complex. Patients from around the region travel to Vanderbilt for advanced care of common and rare heart conditions.

  • Minimally invasive treatment

    Less invasive transcatheter and surgical techniques treat many types of valve disease. Incisions are small, if any. And most patients go home the next day.
