The region’s leader in advanced treatment for heart and vascular conditions
The specialists at MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute have been on the forefront of heart and vascular care in the Mid-atlantic region for more than 60 years.:
- We opened the first Coronary Care Unit dedicated to treating heart conditions in the early 1960s
- In 1988, we were one of the first four hospitals in the world to implant a ventricular assist device, which helps the hearts of patients with end-stage heart failure pump blood
- We’ve been involved with every major clinical trial of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) devices, an advanced treatment for structural heart disease, since 2007
Our practice and our expertise have grown tremendously since the early days. Because of our drive to deliver the most advanced treatment options for our patients, we’ve forged a partnership with the Cleveland Clinic Heart & Vascular Institute to pool our resources and offer patients better care than ever.
