OhioHealth Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the Structural Heart Disease Program
OhioHealth is celebrating this month the 10th anniversary of its structural heart program, which has grown into a national leader in structural heart disease.
Since its launch in 2011, the structural heart team has helped usher in new, catheter-based therapies for diseases affecting the aortic valve, the mitral valve and soon, the tricuspid valve. These new therapies are less invasive, require less time in the hospital, have lower risk and provide a quicker return to a normal life.
In this medical minute, Marcus Thorpe talks with Dr. Steven Yakubov, system chief, OhioHealth Advanced Structural Heart Disease, about the early days of the program and how it has evolved during the last decade.
