Minneapolis Heart Institute at Abbott Northwestern

Minneapolis Heart Institute at Abbott Northwestern Hospital offers the full spectrum of cardiovascular care including innovative research therapies in partnership with Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation.  Because of the large number of patients treated at our Heart Valve Center, the team has developed specialized skills and expertise related to diagnosis and treatment. 

We also have experience in treating patients with complex heart valve disease, including those patients who may be candidates for high-risk surgery and those who may be better suited for transcatheter approaches.
