The average heart beats 4,800 times per day. And every single beat is incredible.
One missed heart beat can send your health into a spiral – that’s why your heart deserves the most advanced care in mid-Missouri. Whether it’s normalizing an irregular heartbeat or performing a valve replacement without open-heart surgery, our doctors have the expertise and cutting-edge technology that can only be found at an academic health system.
A Team Approach for Complex Conditions
Mid-Missouri’s first transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) team uses a minimally invasive surgery to offer quicker recovery, less scarring and a chance for valve replacement to those who don't qualify for open-heart surgery.
Using a cardiac ablation procedure, our doctors can stop heart tissues from causing irregular heartbeats, or atrial fibrillation (AFib). This procedure reduces our patients’ exposure to radiation, making it a safer solution.
Leadless Micra Pacemaker
As the first in the region to offer the leadless Micra pacemaker, we can regulate heart rhythms without wires. The device is the smallest cardiac pacemaker available, just one-tenth the size of a traditional pacemaker.
Hybrid Convergent Ablation Surgery
If left untreated, AFib can increase your risk of having a stroke or heart failure. In a leading-edge hybrid convergent ablation surgery, a cardiologist and electrophysiologist team up to correct abnormal tissue.
Our doctors go to immeasurable lengths to investigate and diagnose every patient symptom. From the moment you walk through our doors to the administration of treatment, our procedures are centered around you every step of the way.
