We're one of the best places in the Midwest to come to repair a narrowing aortic valve, called aortic stenosis. The only program of its type in Omaha, Nebraska Medicine’s interventional and structural heart programs specialize in offering some of the most advanced and innovative procedures to repair heart problems, many of which are done via a needle-puncture of the skin, rather than by using an open heart approach, meaning a much faster healing time for you.
Nebraska Medicine has a multidisciplinary team of surgeons and cardiologists who specialize in managing aortic conditions including in those with congenital conditions and connective tissue disease like Marfan's syndrome.
Treatments We Offer:
- Medical Monitoring
- Heart Valve Repair
- Balloon Valvuloplasty
- Surgical Heart Valve Replacement
- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a procedure we've successfully performed more than 150 times since 2013, in order to repair heart valves when open heart surgery is not an option.
Accreditations and Awards
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons 3 Star Rating
As a national leader in health care transparency and accountability, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons believes that the public has a right to know the quality of surgical outcomes.
To further this goal, the Society has established the STS Public Reporting initiative, which allows participants in the STS National Database to voluntarily report their surgical outcomes to the public on the STS website, the Consumer Reports website, or both.
The first public reporting scores and ratings were published in September 2010 on isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery data that were included in the ACSD. Since then, the initiative has grown to include isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) and combined AVR and CABG (AVR+CABG) from the ACSD, observed-to-expected operative mortality ratios for procedures in the CHSD, and lobectomy procedures in the GTSD.
Using this information, consumers can see how participating cardiac surgical groups compare with national benchmarks for overall performance, survival, complications, and other measures. Nebraska Medicine is proud to achieve a 3 Star rating for cardiac surgery.
