Structural Heart and Valve

The Structural Heart and Valve program at Brookwood Baptist Health delivers a highly-personalized, innovative approach to treating heart valve disease and structural heart conditions.

A structural heart and valve disease diagnosis can be scary. But cutting-edge treatment options at Brookwood Baptist Health mean a healthier heart is within reach. From a better quality of life and reduced symptoms, to a potentially longer life, and less work for your heart muscle – you have everything to gain.

Brookwood Baptist Health offers treatment for Structural Heart & Valve disease at three convenient locations: Brookwood Baptist Medical Center (Homewood, AL), Princeton Baptist Medical Center (Birmingham, AL) and Shelby Baptist Medical Center (Alabaster, AL). Our program utilizes the Heart Team approach, bringing together specialists from cardiology, endovascular surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, interventional radiology and advanced cardiovascular imaging. With so many ways to treat heart disease – in clinic, the cath lab, or in the operating room – the Heart Team approach means patients receive an individualized plan for care.

The Structural Heart & Valve program treats a range of conditions affecting the Aortic, Mitral and Tricuspid Valves, as well as the structure of the heart.

‘Structural heart disease’ covers a large variety of heart conditions that aren’t generally related to coronary disease and refers to both valvular heart disease and any defect within the heart. Many defects can be repaired percutaneously via catheter, instead of through open-heart surgery.
