Program Highlights

URMC is one of the busiest centers of its size in the country for:

  • implantation of ventricular assist devices (VADs),

and there are growing programs in:

  • transcatheter based aortic valve implementation (TAVI),
  • minimally invasive aortic valve replacement, and
  • minimally invasive mitral valve replacement.

Twelve to fifteen orthotopic cardiac transplants are also completed each year.

Approximately 20% of coronary procedures are performed without cardiopulmonary bypass, providing unique challenges in anesthetic management. URMC is the only center performing congenital heart surgery in western upstate New York.
