Heart Treatments

Get the Latest in Heart Care

Where do you turn for managing abnormal heart rhythms, heart disease, high blood pressure or heart failure? Turn to the experts at Sanford Health.

Our trained specialists always treat heart conditions with the most advanced technologies and techniques. When you need surgery, we have options ranging from minimally invasive alternatives to open-heart surgery.

Our heart technology makes possible:

  • Aortic stenosis treatment without open-heart surgery: TAVR heart valve replacement is a minimally invasive treatment option for severe aortic stenosis.


  • Heart monitoring without batteries: The CardioMEMS HF system is the first and only FDA-approved heart failure monitoring device. It works with a tiny transmitter and needs no batteries. Watch the video in the CardioMEMS tab to learn more. 


  • Heart valve treatment before heart failure: The MitraClip is minimally invasive catheter therapy for treatment of mitral regurgitation. It can prevent heart failure before it happens. Watch an animation of the procedure in the MitraClip tab below. 

Whatever your heart condition or ailment, come to Sanford Health's expert heart specialists for treatment. We'll walk you through surgical and non-surgical options to find your best treatment plan.
