Patients with complex heart valve disease need the highest level of skill and service we can provide. That’s why we’ve brought together a team of heart specialists, nurses, and specialized staff all in one place who work collaboratively to determine the best plan of care for patients with structural heart disease who may be candidates for catheter-based procedures.
The Munson Structural Heart Clinic offers people who have severe valvular abnormalities the opportunity to be seen by a cohort of physicians, surgeons, and nurses during one visit to the Munson Heart Center Cardiac Diagnostic Suite. All diagnostic tests needed are performed on the same day and are then evaluated by multiple specialists. Patients leave feeling confident that their care plan has been developed and agreed upon by our team of experts.
