Heart Program at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute

At Inova, our network of heart doctors is the largest in the Washington, DC, metro area. We are one of the most active and most experienced heart clinics in the region. All of our locations are seamlessly interconnected, meaning you get the same high quality of care across all campuses.

Our program features:

  • Innovative research and clinical trials: We are consistently on the short list of U.S. hospitals selected to study the latest advances in heart disease treatments, including trials for atrial fibrillation and heart valve disease. Read more about our research.
  • Leaders in valve replacements: We were the first hospital in Virginia to offer the CoreValve trial, a minimally invasive treatment for a heart valve disease known as aortic stenosis. We are also one of just a handful of centers around the country to offer three transcatheter valve options to patients. We’re known nationally for superior outcomes and expertise in minimally invasive valve procedures.
  • Robust LVAD/heart transplant program: Inova Fairfax Hospital in Northern Virginia is one of just two hospitals in the Washington, DC, region implanting VAD/ LVAD devices, heart pumps for patients living with end-stage heart failure. We also performed the first heart transplant and first total artificial heart implantation in the region. This has earned us the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for exemplary quality care and service.
  • Nationally-recognized atrial fibrillation (AFib) team: The doctors at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute know that each patient, and each case, is unique. Depending on your particular symptoms and medical history, treatment for your atrial fibrillation can include medication, cardioversion, CryoAblation or interventional procedures. Inova Heart and Vascular Institute at Inova Fairfax Hospital is proud to be a pre-approval research site for the WATCHMAN™ LAAC Device. We are also worldwide leaders in performing the Maze procedure.
  • State-of-the art facilities: Our hybrid operating room was the first of its kind in the nation to install a biplane hybrid OR, allowing doctors to simultaneously visualize the heart in two different views during procedures. It allows cardiac surgeons, electrophysiologists and cardiologists to operate together on the same patient, reducing the risk of complications and shortening recovery times.
  • Region's only Level 1 trauma center: We're the largest heart attack care provider in Northern Virginia and also have one of the country's lowest mortality rates.
