Nebraska Heart Institute
For over 15 years, Nebraska Heart Institute has been widely recognized as the leading cardiac center in Nebraska and northern Kansas. From diagnosis to recovery, the Nebraska Heart Institute provides heart valve patients the entire spectrum of therapies from traditional open heart procedures to minimally-invasive approaches including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
To ensure that you - or your loved one - gets the best possible care, Nebraska Heart Institute has developed a true "Heart Team" approach to valvular disorders including aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation.Learn more.
In addition, the surgeons and cardiologists at Nebraska Heart Institute are at the forefront of medicine working on national research studies evaluating non-invasive transcatheter procedures for heart valve treatment.
Over 530 TAVRs Completed
At the Nebraska Heart Institute Heart Valve Center, physicians, nursing and support staff are ready to help patients manage and treat isolated and complex forms of heart valve disease. The Nebraska Heart Institute also has surgeons and cardiologists that specialize in the treatment of cardiac conditions that often accompany heart valve disease including atrial fibrilaltion, coronary artery disease and aortic aneurysms.
In addition to surgical procedures for heart valve repair and heart valve replacement, Nebraska Heart Institute was the first hospital in Nebraska to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for its patients. With over 530 TAVRs completed, Nebraska Heart Institute is one of the leading TAVR teams in the region.Learn more.
As shown in the video above, TAVR is a minimally-invasive procedure that does not require an incision to the patient's chest or ribs. Since starting the first TAVR program in Nebraska in 2011, Nebraska Heart Institute has been an active participant in numerous national primary trials to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TAVR. These trials have led to TAVR now being offered for most patients with aortic stenosis.
