The South Carolina Heart Valve Center

About Our Program

Drs. Crawford and IkonomidisThe South Carolina Heart Valve Center at MUSC is the first and only center in South Carolina dedicated to the comprehensive treatment of heart valve disease. All patient needs — from diagnosis to treatment and recovery — are met in one location at MUSC's state-of-the-art Ashley River Tower.

Treating heart valve disease is complicated, requiring a thorough understanding of valve disease and treatment options. MUSC's valve experts include cardiologists, who offer non-surgical interventional procedures such as percutaneous devices, and cardiothoracic surgeons, who offer a range of options from minimally invasive valve surgery to valve repair and replacement.

MUSC's renowned team of valve specialists is skilled in the advanced treatment of heart valve disease, including comprehensive care for aortic and mitral valve disorders, minimally invasive valve surgery, adult congenital valve disorders and percutaneous and novel devices, as well as participation in the latest clinical trials and research.

The South Carolina Heart Valve Center offers patient evaluations by team of cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists who are recognized valve experts — along with an individualized disease management plan — in a single appointment. This comprehensive collaboration between surgeons and cardiologists allows us to deliver the most effective treatment to each patient.

The MUSC Heart and Vascular Center boasts some of the world’s best heart experts – and South Carolina’s only full-service heart and vascular center.
