Our Collaborative Heart Team

Structural heart and valve decision-making is often highly complex requiring close collaboration between our imaging specialists, structural interventionalists and cardiac surgeons – also known as a ‘heart team’ approach.

Heart Team specialists meet with patients during clinic visits to develop a patient-centered, comprehensive plan. In addition to the heart team, patients receive ongoing education and access to a nurse before, during and after procedures.
