Structural Heart Program
The Structural Heart Program here at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and Memorial Hermann Hospital is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers including those specializing in Interventional Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery and Cardiac Imaging.
The program offers services to care for the complex needs of patients with structural heart disease. Including but not limited to:
- minimally invasive treatment for patients with valve disease
- congenital heart disease
- cardiac abnormalities in which the patient is not eligible for invasive therapeutic procedures
Valve disorders impact your heart’s ability to regulate blood flow. Valvular problems can cause the valve to insufficiently open (stenosis) or insufficiently close (regurgitation).
Some common valve disorders include:
- Aortic stenosis.
- Aortic regurgitation.
- Mitral stenosis.
- Mitral regurgitation.
- Tricuspid regurgitation.
At The Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute we have experts in the field of minimally invasive procedures who deliver the highest quality of care to our patients with complicated cardiac diagnoses.

The Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center was the first hospital in Houston and one of the first in the United States to perform the TAVR procedure using the only FDA-approved device, the SAPIEN® valve. This innovative new therapy for critical aortic stenosis now provides lifesaving technology to patients who were previously too sick for traditional surgical aortic valve replacement.
