Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
At Wellstar, we are healing patients with structural heart and valve disease using state-of-the-art, minimally invasive heart care techniques.
Wellstar Structural Heart & Valve is a comprehensive program focused on the evaluation and treatment of patients with advanced and complex structural heart problems, including valvular heart disease, patent foramen ovale, atrial septal defects, and left atrial appendage occlusion. Providing traditional valve surgery along with minimally invasive interventional options, Wellstar’s clinical results are among national leaders in terms of positive outcomes with fewer complications.
The core of Wellstar’s Structural Heart and Valve Program is a multidisciplinary team of valve specialists that includes cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, advanced imaging cardiologists, and cardiac anesthesiologists. Offering one-stop collaboration between multiple specialists, the Wellstar Structural Heart team provides timely workups and evaluations, close contact with the patient and family throughout the journey, and ongoing communication with referring physicians.
Our patient-centered approach is facilitated by a nurse coordinator who guides the patient and family from the point of evaluation through treatment and recovery. The nurse coordinator serves as a link to the Structural Heart care team and provides patient education, support, and information related to hospital services and community resources.
