We’re proud to be at the forefront of heart care, particularly in less invasive and nonsurgical treatments [link to page ID 18.104.22.168], such as the LARIAT® procedure. [link to page ID 22.214.171.124] This nonsurgical treatment helps reduce stroke risk in patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) who can’t take blood-thinning medications. It’s a good example of the leading-edge procedures we provide to our adult and pediatric patients.
From ablations and angioplasty to stenting and catheterization, you’re in expert hands and have the advantage of accessing the latest technology dedicated to delivering superior cardiovascular care.
Cardiologists, interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons from UT Health San Antonio bring their surgical expertise to the Heart and Vascular Institute and the Heart Valve Clinic.
Our surgeons are known for their constant pursuit of the latest techniques and technology in heart care. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) [link to page ID 126.96.36.199] is the latest example of this pioneering spirit. This surgical option was developed for patients with aortic stenosis who have few alternatives to alleviate their symptoms.
We’ve also built a strong partnership with UT Health San Antonio’s Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery to deliver the most advanced endovascular techniques, as well as traditional vascular treatment [link to page ID 188.8.131.52] options.
