Vishal Patel, MD, and fellow NCMA cardiologist Patrick Coleman, MD, are adding to Sonoma County’s structural heart expertise. Both providers are now offering a minimally invasive alternative to open heart surgery — MitraClip — the world’s first transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVr) therapy for patients with primary or secondary mitral regurgitation. This catheter-based approach to repair the mitral valve in beating hearts is performed at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. MitraClip has proven since 2003 to be a good option to alleviate mitral regurgitation without open heart surgery for patients considered to be at high surgical risk.
