Minimally invasive heart procedures like TAVR and MitraClip have made headlines in recent years. What makes these innovative approaches so remarkable? And what other advanced techniques are available to make heart surgery less traumatic while changing lives for the better?
Host, Dr. Jonathan Fialkow, deputy medical director and chief of cardiology at Baptist Health’s Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, (MCVI), and Dr. Ramon Quesada, medical director of interventional cardiology at MCVI, delve into the fascinating world of heart procedure innovations.
Dr. Quesada was the first physician in Florida to perform a percutaneous mitral valve repair with MitraClip. He’s been a clinical investigator on multiple trials for coronary interventions and structural heart disease and a leader in developing minimally invasive techniques.
