Valve Center of Excellence

St.Vincent Heart Center of Indianapolis

An innovative team approach to valvular heart disease.

The Valve Center of Excellence at St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana is changing patients’ lives with a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of valvular heart disease. Our team includes:

interventional cardiologists
  • Cardiologists
  • Cardiothoracic surgeons
  • Physician assistants
  • Nurses
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Specialty technicians

With both open and minimally invasive procedures, we replace all major valves of the heart. And with one convenient diagnosis and treatment plan, we keep things simple for our patients.

One day. One individualized plan.

Diagnosing and treating valvular heart disease hasn't always been simple. After several visits for diagnostics, a consultation with an interventional cardiologist, and another consultation with a cardiologist, the process can be overwhelming. That's why the Valve Center of Excellence does it differently.

We keep things simple with a same-day plan, which includes:

  • A morning of diagnostics
  • A break for lunch
  • A consultation with a team of specialists in the late afternoon
  • An individualized treatment plan completed by the end of the day*

*Some insurance companies may have restrictions that would cause the testing to occur on a follow-up day.

Edwards SAPIEN® Valve

Some patients who suffer from severe aortic stenosis are not candidates for open-chest surgery. Patients like these need alternative, less invasive treatments for their aortic stenosis, like a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with the recently FDA approved Edwards SAPIEN® Valve.
