Structural heart disease refers to defects in the heart at birth or abnormalities of the valves and vessels of the heart caused by age, injury or infection. A diagnosis of a structural heart condition can be life-limiting if untreated.
The OhioHealth Structural Heart Disease Program provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatments for patients with structural heart conditions. We specialize in treating patients with advanced and complex structural heart
disease who may not qualify for conventional surgery.
We believe that participating in clinical trials allows us to get the newest, best therapies to patients at the earliest opportunity.
OhioHealth structural heart experts treated Dwight's condition using the innovative, minimally invasive TAVR procedure, giving him a new aortic valve and a new life.
Located at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital and OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, the OhioHealth Structural Heart Disease Clinics give patients access to a team of structural heart experts who work together to fully evaluate each patient and determine the best therapy.
During your visit to the clinic, you will receive lab work, cardiac imaging and other diagnostic testing as well as meet with one of our experienced physicians to discuss your specific structural heart condition and treatment options — scheduled on the same day for your convenience.
Using small catheters, advanced imaging and tiny incisions, our physicians have extensive experience treating structural heart disease with minimally invasive procedures. For our patients, this means a quicker recovery, shorter hospital stays, better survival rates and improved quality of life.
We are able to offer our patients the most innovative treatments, including:
