Heart Treatments

Find the Latest Heart Care Here

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

Your heart specialists are trained to care for a variety of conditions with the most advanced technologies and treatments. When treatment is needed, we offer minimally invasive options and open surgical options.

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.


  • Heart valve treatment before heart failure. The MitraClip is minimally invasive catheter therapy for treatment of mitral regurgitation.

More information about each program is available below.
