A message from: David Laxon, MD, Executive Medical Director
Welcome to another issue of Provider Update, in which we highlight some of the Cardiovascular Services provided by University of Minnesota Physicians Heart at Fairview. Currently, we serve patients in 12 convenient Twin Cities locations. In September, we will add another location at Fairview Clinics – Fridley.
In this issue, Greg Helmer, MD and Ganesh Raveendran, MD provide an overview on our groundbreaking Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Program, which allows nonsurgical aortic valve replacement for patients with high risk severe aortic valve stenosis. Ranjit John, MD discusses the capabilities of our cardiac surgery team that performs procedures at Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina and University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview in Minneapolis, while Steven Heifetz, MD and Suma Konety, MD speak about our Cardio-Oncology Program. Finally, Bob Wilson, MD takes us through past and present innovations at the University of Minnesota.
