The Valve and Structural Heart Disease Program at The Ohio State University Heart and Vascular Center has a reputation for excellence in the diagnosis, treatment and management of complex cardiac conditions. Our multidisciplinary heart valve clinic allows patients to be evaluated by a cardiologist, cardiac surgeon or an interventional cardiologist in one appointment. In many cases, additional tests may also be performed during the same visit.

A variety of treatment options are available for patients with valve or structural heart disease, including conventional open-heart surgery, minimally invasive heart surgery or transcatheter procedures, depending on our expert assessment of the patient’s specific needs. We are currently participating in a variety of clinical trials evaluating groundbreaking therapies for patients with structural heart disease.

Physician referrals are required. Patients should request a referral from their regular healthcare providers. Healthcare professionals wishing to make referrals, or consumers with questions about the referral process can contact Ohio State’s Valve and Structural Heart Disease Clinic.
