Datasource: TAVR
 
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) – a treatment for patients with a narrowed aortic heart valve and who are at high risk for open-heart surgery due to age or other health conditions
  • The maze procedure – treats atrial fibrillation with ablation, which creates scar tissue that helps stop the irregular heartbeat
  • Heart transplant – we were the first hospital in Broward County to perform this surgery

Whenever possible our surgeons use advanced, minimally invasive surgical procedures. Minimally invasive heart surgery involves a small incision in the chest, rather than a large one along your breastbone.
