Dr. Gafoor's passion is the field of structural heart disease. This new and rising field is an innovative way to approach complex heart and valve disease patients without open heart surgery. Whether patients have aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, atrial fibrillation, a prior heart valve that now needs replacement or more - this century has possibilities that were not available even as recently as five years ago. Dr. Gafoor trained in the US as well as abroad, and his goal is to bring patients the best in worldwide care right at their doorsteps. The Structural Heart & Valve Disease team's goal is patient safety and quality of life, and they want to not only add years to each patient's life, but life to each patient's years. Patients are important to Dr. Gafoor - not just for who they are and what they've done, but also for what they plan to do. Not just today, but tomorrow, and for the future after that.
