Structural Heart & Valve Disease
The cardiovascular surgeons and interventional cardiologists at Torrance Memorial offer a full range of procedures - including advanced minimally invasive procedures using catheter-based techniques - to treat all types of structural heart and heart valve conditions. Structural Heart and Valve disease is characterized by damage to or a defect in one of the four heart valves: the mitral, aortic, tricuspid or pulmonary.
Our cardiovascular physicians provide state-of-the-art care using leading-edge technology and work collaboratively to deliver the best possible outcomes for patients. As part of a partnership between Cedars-Sinai and Torrance Memorial, our structural heart and valve care team – which includes cardiovascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, cardiac hospitalists, and cardiac anesthesiologists – can leverage the expertise of Cedars-Sinai cardiovascular specialists who are available to provide advanced, specialized care to Torrance Memorial patients.
