Dr. Vijay Iyer In the News

Some of the most common issues affecting people worldwide are aortic stenosis (narrowing or obstruction of the aortic valve), atrial fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm), and degenerative mitral regurgitation (connective tissue of the mitral valve causes lesions preventing normal heart function). Now, more than ever, the following minimally invasive technologies are saving and improving lives. 

Dr Iyer, an interventional cardiologist with Great Lakes Cardiovascular, explains how they treat blockages in arteries and the minimally invasive procedures available.
