St. Francis Hospital Heart Valve Center at Good Samaritan Hospital
The St. Francis Hospital Heart Valve Center at Good Samaritan Hospital brings leading-edge expertise to valve disease patients in or near Suffolk County.
Our pioneering investigational work has changed the way aortic valve stenosis is treated. Our findings from the Medtronic Core Valve Pivotal Trial helped win FDA approval of a revolutionary, minimally invasive device that allows patients too elderly or ill to conquer vavular disease without open heart surgery.
Our outstanding, dedicated team of interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and highly-trained staff work together to provide patients the most viable options for valve repair and replacement therapy. In keeping with this comprehensive approach, the St. Francis Hospital Heart Valve Center at Good Samaritan Hospital offers a one stop destination for screening and evaluation of valvular disease.
We offer same day testing and consultation with our physicians to determine the best treatment solutions. While open-heart surgery has been standard for treating conditions such as aortic valve stenosis, our pioneering physicians are experts in transcatheter aortic valve (TAVR) procedures that can provide qualifying patients with the best minimally invasive options.
