Orlando Health Heart Institute - New TAVR procedure means new hope for patients

Published on Sep 21, 2012
A new approach to replacing heart valves is giving new hope to patients once considered 'too sick' for surgery. Doctors at the Heart Valve Center at the Orlando Health Heart Institute recently began using the first artificial heart valve approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to replace a narrowed heart valve by going through a leg artery instead of a traditional open heart surgery.

The procedure, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), is designed for high-risk patients living with severe chest pain, congestive heart failure (including shortness of breath, fatigue, and edema) and other symptoms of aortic stenosis — an age-related heart disease developed when calcium deposits cause the aortic valve to narrow, forcing the heart to work harder to pump enough blood through the smaller opening.

Irving DeKoff, the hospital's first patient to have the procedure, shares his story. Visit the Orlando Health Heart Institute: www.orlandohealth.com/heartinstitute

Orlando Health Heart Institute Opens

December 2011

Orlando Health is starting something new in patient care for the community. The organization’s newest medical facility, named the Orlando Health Heart Institute, has opened. As part of a new approach to patient care the institute brings together doctors surgeons and clinical staff to provide advanced diagnostic services, the latest surgical and non-surgical treatment options, comprehensive education and innovative research.

“The Heart Institute reflects Orlando Health’s vision of creating a new model of care,” says Sherrie Sitarik, president and CEO, Orlando Health. “While the Heart Institute will be integrated throughout Orlando Health’s seven hospitals, many of the services will be provided in the new facility designed around patients and their needs.”

The new patient experience includes greater accessibility to clinical experts, more coordinated and collaborated care, advanced diagnostics and more timely results in a centralized downtown campus location.

Inside the Orlando Health Heart Institute patients will find Mid-Florida Cardiology Specialists and Orlando Heart Center, now affiliates of Orlando Health, Orlando Health Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, The Heart Center at Arnold Palmer Hospital, vascular surgery practices, advanced imaging and an accredited cardiac rehabilitation program.

While the heart of the institute is cardiac care, with 150,000 square feet of space, the new building will provide a new model of care for patients in other clinical areas and services as well. The medical facility includes Level I Orthopedics, Outpatient Rehabilitation, specialty multidisciplinary clinics, including diabetes, Pharmacy, Guest Services, Patient Financial Services and other services.

Cardiac Rehabilitation was the first department to move into the new building. During the next couple of months various services and departments will be transferred to the new building, located on the downtown campus, at 1222 South Orange Avenue – across from MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.

This partnership will allow us to take our practice and Orlando Health’s Cardiovascular program to a new level – bringing great opportunity for new programs, services and quality initiatives for the benefit of all cardiovascular patients. In addition, OHC will participate in a larger number of insurance plans.
