Only at SJ/C: The Valve Clinic and the Hybrid Operating Room

We are used to bringing the region exclusive advances in medical technology and treatment, but this one is especially exciting. The Heart Hospital at St. Joseph's has built the first hybrid operating room, which lead to the creation of the multi-disciplinary approach of The Valve Clinic, where our surgeons perform the transcatherter aortic valve replacement.
What does this mean for you? First, we can offer the latest treatments here in your hometown. Second, these are designed to be minimally invasive so you can get back to your life faster.

The Hybrid Operating Room

We completely renovated one of our operating rooms at The Heart Hospital to create a combination integrated OR and a cath lab. With advanced diagnostics, doctors are continuously fed a world of data on the patient. Because it is a combination, the surgeons can quickly transform a minimally invasive cath procedure into an open surgery if they find something serious.

The Valve Clinic

Our multidisciplinary team of experts at The Heart Hospital works together to diagnosis and treat complex valve conditions. At The Valve Clinic, patients are able to meet with an experienced team of surgeons, interventional cardiologists and other diagnostic specialists. Our team of specialists will review your case together to ensure each patient receives a recommendation for treatment that is specific to them and their complex valve condition.
The Heart Hospital is the first in the region to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The hybrid operative suite allows cardiovascular surgeons and interventional cardiologists to work together on this new innovative procedure allows a cardiovascular surgeon and interventional cardiologist to work together on a minimally invasive approach for correcting severe aortic stenosis.
This procedure is recommended for patient who might not be able to withstand open surgery.
