More Experience, Better Outcomes
As a high-volume center, we have extensive experience and excellent outcomes with transcatheter aortic valve replacement, a minimally invasive alternative to open heart surgery.
More Minimally Invasive Treatments
Our heart surgeons offer minimally invasive techniques in which the they reach and repair the aortic valve through small incisions -- which may reduce blood loss, scarring, and the risk of infection while speeding your recovery.
A Choice of Heart Valve Replacements
If you need a heart valve replacement, we offer mechanical valves made of carbon, as well as valves made from animal tissue. We screen and educate you on the best option for your needs and lifestyle.
Clinical Trials Access
As a Duke patient, you may be able to participate in clinical trials or therapies that may not be available at other centers.
Support for Your Recovery
Our cardiac prevention and cardiac rehabilitation programs give you a personalized plan for recovery after surgery and help with long-term management of your heart health. Programs include exercise instruction, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle modification to optimize your health.
