Heart Specialist in Port Charlotte

Structural Heart Interventions

As a leading heart specialist in Port Charlotte, I specialise in diagnosing and treating structural heart disease, a broad category encompassing abnormalities or defects within the heart’s components such as valves, chambers, walls, or muscle. The heart’s four valves can become narrowed, blocked, or leaky, resulting in significant strain on the heart muscle and potentially leading to heart failure and even death. Similarly, defects within the septum, the wall that divides the heart’s right and left sides, can also contribute to heart failure and increase the risk of stroke. These conditions, whether acquired through ageing-related degeneration or present at birth (congenital), require expert evaluation and tailored treatment approaches. As a dedicated heart doctor in Port Charlotte, my focus is on providing comprehensive care to address these complex structural issues and improve patients’ overall cardiac health
