Dr. Pislaru's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pislaru "Interests Valvular diseases Development of percutaneous valvular interventions (closure of perivalvular leaks, development of valve stents, mitral valve clips, etc.) Current imaging methods cannot accurately predict which patients with valvular heart disease will have unfavorable outcomes. We are assessing emerging imaging technologies (such as deformation imaging and tissue elasticity) that could improve this. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pislaru "Cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeons at Mayo Clinic are part of an integrated, multidisciplinary team of doctors and health care professionals who provide individualized care for each patient. Having all this expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — your care is discussed among the team, your test results are available quickly and appointments are scheduled in coordination. Specialists work together to provide exactly the care you need."
