What Sets Us Apart
At Pelisyonkis Langone, cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and imaging specialists work as a team to treat people with aortic valve disease, in which an important heart valve is damaged. Two common conditions that affect the valve’s ability to work correctly include aortic stenosis and aortic regurgitation.
Doctors at our Heart Valve Center specialize in, as well as helped pioneer, minimally invasive techniques to repair or replace a damaged aortic valve. They perform the latest and most effective procedures, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
