Structural Heart Disease Program

The Renown Health Structural Heart Disease Program specializes in treating progressive and complex structural heart disease patients, combining the latest procedures and clinical research to give our patients the best available options.

Structural heart disease refers to defects in the heart at birth or abnormalities of the valves and vessels of the heart caused by age, injury or infection. A diagnosis of a structural heart condition can be life-limiting if untreated.

Since our inception as the first structural heart program in the area in 2015, we've been committed to offering the best comprehensive diagnostics and leading-edge treatments for structural heart conditions.
