Using state-of-the-art technologies, our multidisciplinary teams of cardiac specialists are able to treat and repair structural heart conditions, bringing you relief and restoring your quality of life. When your heart valves or chambers have a defect, it may have been present at birth (a congenital heart condition) or it may become more serious over time. It is now possible for us to repair many structural heart defects including:
- Adult congenital heart disease
- Aortic stenosis
- Atrial septal defect (ASD)
- Mitral valve stenosis
- Patent foramen ovale (PFO)
- Ventricular defect
Whatever the origins of your structural heart disease, in time you may have symptoms that reduce your energy and your quality of life. Our structural heart team includes Heart Center cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and cardiovascular surgeons who collaborate in the first and only program in the Mid-Hudson Valley and northwestern Connecticut to offer access to less invasive or minimally invasive techniques such as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Repair (TAVR) and MitraClip® (Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair).
Our pulmonary embolism response team consists of specialists who are in the forefront of nationwide research into the unique needs of high-risk patients with pulmonary embolism (blockage of an artery in the lungs). You have access to the first and only team with this expertise in our region, located close to home.
For leading-edge, lifesaving diagnosis and treatment of a variety of structural heart conditions, there’s no place in our region like Vassar Brothers Medical Center.
