Heart valve care that gets you back to life.

We see how heart valve disease can impact your life.

At the Lankenau Heart Institute, part of Main Line Health, we're committed to a patient-centered collaborative approach to heart valve disease care — from initial evaluation, through discussion of treatment options to recovery and follow-up care. We work closely as a team and with each patient and their referring physician to develop and implement a treatment plan that best fits their needs and ensures the best-possible outcomes.

We're proud of our reputation of embracing the ability to offer promising new treatments and our excellence in treating complex heart valve disease, including:

  • Aortic, mitral or tricuspid valve disease
  • Multiple valve problems
  • Bicuspid aortic valve and associated aneurysms
  • Endocarditis (valve infection)
  • Redo and complex valve procedures
  • Innovative investigational valve therapies (least invasive research options)

The latest technology and advanced treatment options

Lankenau Heart Institute is transforming the field of cardiovascular medicine by offering less invasive, newer-generation devices like transcatheter-based therapies to repair or replace the mitral, aortic or tricuspid valves. Through new innovations and clinical trials, we offer less invasive therapies that are not available anywhere else in the region. And we currently offer one of the largest portfolios of minimally invasive valve repair options in the country.

If you're looking for less invasive approaches to open heart surgery, or if surgery is too risky of a treatment option for you, we offer:

Transcatheter options

  • TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement)
  • Transcatheter mitral valve edge-to-edge repair
  • Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR)
  • Transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement
  • Transcatheter tricuspid valve edge-to-edge repair
  • Balloon valvuloplasty
  • Paravalvular leak closure
  • Cardiac defect closure

Minimally-invasive surgical options

  • Aortic valve repair/replacement
  • Mitral valve repair/replacement
  • Tricuspid valve repair/replacement
  • Bioprosthetic or mechanical valve replacements
  • Complex multi-valve or redo operations
  • Cardiac defect closure

Our experienced and dedicated team is ready to treat you

Our dedicated team of prominent cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, cardiac imaging specialists and advanced care nurses are pioneers in the field and have specialized in diagnosing and treating heart valve disease for over 30 years.

Our team is skilled in using all current FDA-approved and cutting-edge investigational devices for transcatheter treatment of aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation and cardiac structural defects.
