Highlights of Expertise
We train physicians from around the world to perform robotic cardiac and mitral valve repair procedures.
Dr. W. Randolph Chitwood, now retired, performed the first mitral valve repair surgery in the United States in 2000 using minimally invasive robotic technology. Joined by Dr. L. Wiley Nifong, they led the federal Food and Drug Administration's successful clinical trials on the use of surgical robots on cardiac patients.
Our imaging services include nuclear cardiology, computerized tomography-angiography (CTA), echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, and diagnostic chest x-rays for patients with a wide scope of medical needs.
