Andrew Goldsweig, MD, is an interventional cardiologist at UNMC and Nebraska Medicine specializing in structural heart disease. After his undergraduate studies at MIT, he earned his medical degree at NYU. He trained in internal medicine, cardiology and interventional cardiology at Yale, and went on to complete a dedicated fellowship in structural heart disease at Brown. His clinical interests include transcatheter aortic valve replacement, mitral valve repair, patent foramen ovale and atrial septal defect closure, and interventions for peripheral arterial disease and pulmonary embolism (all of which he would be delighted to speak with you about any time you like). His research employs large data registries to study outcomes of structural heart disease interventions.
