Minimally Invasive Treatment Options: The Benefit

Less invasive treatment options offer countless benefits to the patient, including:

  • Less risk of infection
  • Less blood loss and need for blood transfusions
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Significantly less pain and scarring
  • Faster recovery
  • Quicker return to normal activities

Minimally Invasive Treatment Options We Offer

Carotid Artery Stenting

We use stenting, which involves the placement of a tiny tube into your carotid artery, to treat abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease and peripheral vascular disease.

Catheter Ablation

TriHealth physicians offer the latest treatments for atrial fibrillation, giving patients an alternative to a lifetime of medications, expenses and side effects.

Chronic Total Occlusion Intervention

This procedure offers hope to patients with heart failure symptoms who cannot find relief from other medical modalities.

Drug Releasing Stents for Leg Artery Blockage

If you have a vascular condition causing artery blockages in the legs, your doctor may recommend drug releasing stents as a treatment option.

Endograft

Thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) is a minimally invasive procedure that helps protect an aneurysm from the pressure of blood flow.

Mini-Maze

To offer relief from atrial fibrillation, we provide the maze procedure, including robotic-assisted mini-maze, for those who have not found success with medication and ablation.

Stent Grafts for Aneurysms

An endovascular stent graft is a fabric tube, supported by a metal mesh, called a stent that is used to support a weak spot in an artery, called an aneurysm – in many cases, an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Structural Heart Repairs

Our interventional cardiologists boast a 100 percent success rate on catheter-based closure of a patent foramen ovale (PFO).

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

We are one of the first hospitals in the U.S. to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), for patients suffering from aortic stenosis.

Heart Valve Repair and Replacement

Surgeons at the TriHealth Heart Institute have extensive experience in valve repair and replacement.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
