With groundbreaking treatment and research, we’re pioneering new ways to prevent, detect, and treat heart disease to help patients live longer and better.
Whether you need an echocardiogram, stress test, another noninvasive service, or a more complex procedure such as valve repair or replacement, electrophysiology testing and ablation, coronary stenting, or a pacemaker insertion, we have you covered.
Our cardiovascular teams include doctors and surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other specialists. Having integrated teams allows us to evaluate and test patients quickly — many times all in one day. This can include a CT scan of the heart and blood vessels, consultations with cardiac specialists, and more.
After evaluating your condition, your care team will discuss treatment options and support you in your care journey.
The Structural Heart Program is a collaboration with Overlake Medical Center; co-medical directors are Scott Haugen, MD (Kaiser Permanente Washington), and Ronnier Aviles, MD (Overlake). This program has grown since it began in 2014 and consistently earns high marks in quality and safety.*
At Kaiser Permanente, the message from our cardiologists is clear: Our hearts are in this.
*As rated by the Transcatheter Valvular Therapeutics (TVT) Registry, of which Overlake and Kaiser Permanente Washington are members, which compiles outcomes among the ~400 TAVR Centers and the ~100 MitraClip Centers in the United States. Based on the most recent report for the full year 2018, our program is top 25% nationally for risk-adjusted rolling 3-year mortality and top 10% nationally for 30-day survival, delivering 100% 30-day survival.
"The TAVR procedure is astounding. Finished in about an hour and I went home the next day. I’m getting a second chance at life."
