Our Approach

The leading-edge Heart Valve Center at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center offers patients advanced screenings and diagnostics to detect even the slightest cases of heart murmurs or valvular heart disease.

Comprehensive Screenings

At the first visit, we usually obtain an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) to measure your heart and valve function. We may ask you to have blood drawn at our laboratory to check your kidney and liver function. Our screening process also may include an exercise stress test or cardiac catheterization.

Conditions Treated

Using these sophisticated screening techniques, our cardiovascular specialists can hear a heart murmur loud and clear and can tell if it’s a sign of a more serious underlying condition. After your screening, these experts stand ready to treat a wide range of valvular diseases including:

  • Aortic stenosis
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Heart murmur
  • Mitral valve prolapse
  • Mitral valve regurgitation
