When your heart needs healing, you want to know you’re in expert hands. You can count on the AdventHealth Heart and Vascular Program team. We’ve not only built a national reputation as a leader in comprehensive cardiovascular care, we’re committed to helping you live your very best life.
Comprehensive Care for Your Whole Heart
We diagnose and treat the full spectrum of cardiovascular diseases, offering testing and procedures such as pacemaker implantations, heart catheterizations, angioplasty and more.
Using minimally invasive approaches, we treat congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease and congenital heart disease include angioplasty, diagnostic angiography, stent placement and more.
Structural Heart Disease
Whether you were born with your structural heart condition or it formed later due to aging, infection or an underlying condition, our team will care for you with expertise and compassion.
Heart Rhythm Treatment
From cardioversion, cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) and pacemaker implantation to healthy lifestyle coaching, we’ll be there in a heartbeat with solutions for you or your loved one.
After heart surgery, you need support that includes heart disease education, customized exercise plans, counseling and more. That’s why our team is specially trained to guide your every step.
Inside your body is a vast network of veins and arteries, pumping blood into your heart, your brain, and everywhere else — all keeping you active and healthy. Because many vascular conditions are lifelong, our specialists continuously monitor and adapt your treatment plan to your unique needs.
Access Advanced Technology for Your Heart
- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
- WATCHMAN FLX™
- Transcarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR)
- Philips Azurion Image-Guided Therapy
For people who have severe aortic stenosis (a narrowing of the heart’s aortic valve) and may not be candidates for open-heart surgery, groundbreaking procedures like TAVR offer a safer alternative.
AdventHealth surgeons and invasive cardiologists were some of the first in Florida to perform this less-invasive option, which is done through a small incision in the leg.
With advanced procedures like TAVR, we’re elevating our heart care and improving clinical outcomes that mean fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries for our patients.
The WATCHMAN FLX is a small device that’s implanted inside the left atrial appendage (small pouch in the top left heart chamber), closing off a part of the heart where blood clots most commonly form.
Implanting the FLX is a minimally invasive, one-time procedure that helps prevent blood clots, lowering your risk for stroke. The procedure is completed within an hour and patients commonly stay in the hospital overnight and leave the next day.
If you’re experiencing an irregular heartbeat and can’t tolerate blood thinners, the FLX could help. To see if this device could be right for you, click below to learn more or call our team today.

Transcarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR) is a hybrid procedure that was developed to treat patients with carotid artery disease who are at risk for open surgery. Carotid artery disease is a form of atherosclerosis, or a build-up of plaque in one or both of the main arteries of the neck.
The TCAR procedure is performed through a smaller incision in the neck and in less than half the time of a carotid endarterectomy.
Patients who undergo the TCAR procedure recover quickly so you can return back to living a productive life with less pain and smaller scars.
In the operating room, advanced technologies mean smarter, safer and more efficient procedures. The Azurion image-guided therapy platform from Philips is one such next-generation technology we use in cardiovascular procedures.
This system gives our cardiologists superior imagery and surgical precision. It can also put the controls at your bedside, so your doctor doesn't need to step away to review your measurements. With smarter systems like Azurion, our heart experts are better able to treat complex cardiovascular issues to help you heal.
Find Relief From Vascular Disease
Inside your body is a vast network of veins and arteries, pumping blood into your heart, your brain, and everywhere else — all keeping you active and healthy. When you experience leg or foot pain, hypertension (high blood pressure), or stroke, it may be a sign that your blood flow has been disrupted. When that happens, you likely need treatment for vascular disease. At AdventHealth Ocala, we have the specialized expertise to care for you. Whether that means prescribing medication or performing surgery, you can trust us to help your blood start flowing freely again.
