Advanced Treatment for Structural Heart Issues
Our cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons specialize in repairing defects of the heart. These defects can be congenital or valve and vessel abnormalities caused by disease or wear and tear.
A leader in pioneering safer, more effective treatments, Saint Luke's Structural Cardiology Program participates in dozens of clinical trials each year. As a result, we offer patients the most advanced treatments available for structural heart issues.
Saint Luke's Structural Cardiology Program was:
- The first to perform percutaneous aortic valve replacement in Kansas City
- Among the nation’s first hospitals to perform the MitraClip procedure—and one of only nine in the Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, and Oklahoma region
- Among the first U.S. hospitals to perform transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
- A leader in developing WATCHMAN and the region’s first hospital to offer this device
The Saint Luke’s difference
As the region’s only hospital providing the full spectrum of care—from prevention to the area’s only adult heart transplant program, Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute has one goal: to get you healthy and back home.
Our structural heart experts offer patients convenient access to advanced procedures and clinical trials under one roof. This means you won’t experience the extra stress of having to rush from building to building for appointments.
And you’ll have full access to our board-certified physicians—many of whom are subspecialists in their respective areas of cardiology.
Because many of our physicians have completed advanced fellowship training, Saint Luke’s can offer patients treatment options that they often can’t find elsewhere.
