Sparrow’s expert cardiologists deliver leading-edge care
At Sparrow, our expert heart and vascular center physicians actively participate in clinical trials and stay up-to-date with the latest research in the field. Combined with the most advanced technology in mid-Michigan, their expertise gives our cardiovascular care center an edge.
For patients like you, that means access to the best treatment options available.
For example, the structural heart program at Sparrow, in which doctors strive to identify minimally invasive solutions for structural heart diseases, such as left atrial appendage devices, mitral valve and the TAVR, helps many patients avoid heart surgery.
Sparrow is the only health system in mid-Michigan (and one of just a few nationwide) to perform Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), a minimally invasive procedure offering fresh hope to high-risk patients who can’t undergo traditional open heart valve surgery.
We’re also the most experienced Mid-Michigan advanced ablation program to treat atrial fibrillation.

Cardiovascular Risk Assessment Tool
American College of Cardiology (ACC) and The American Heart Association (AHA) published a 10 year Heart Risk Calculator. The tool is designed to give people an insight to what their risk of developing heart disease is. Your results should be discussed with your primary care provider.
The tool is not intended for people who have already experienced a heart attack or stroke.
The tool cannot reliably predict a risk for heart disease in people less than 40 years of age or greater than 70 years of age.
Our hands can do so many things, the most important of which may be saving someone’s life.
The power is in YOUR hands.
