Early Adoption of Minimally-Invasive & Transcatheter Valve Therapy
Baptist Health Louisville has been an early adopter of minimally-invasive approaches for heart valve repair and heart valve replacement treatments.
Dr. Samuel Pollock, a leading cardiac surgeon at Baptist Health Louisville who has performed over 12,000 cardiac procedures, states, “Our philosophy is to provide low impact surgery by performing a significant percentage of less invasive cardiac procedures with low length hospital stays, low transfusion rates and enhanced patient satisfaction.”
