Offering a full spectrum of cardiology services – including screening and diagnostic tests, advanced medical and surgical treatments, and cardiac rehabilitation and education programs – our Huntington Hospital Heart and Vascular Center provides superior care, and we do it with heart. By the numbers: we perform 2,000 catheterizations and electrophysiology procedures, and 42,000 non-invasive cardiac diagnostic procedures each year.
The Huntington Hospital Heart and Vascular Center exceeded national standards in nine out of 10 clinical measures, and has been recognized as a Center of Distinction by Blue Cross of California.
TAVR – A Minimally Invasive Innovation
We are committed to providing our community with leading-edge cardiology care, including the groundbreaking and minimally-invasive TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) procedure.

Leading the TAVR team at Huntington Hospital, Dr. Azhil (Alex) Durairaj, MD, interventional cardiologist, and Robbin Cohen, MD, medical director for cardiothoracic surgery (pictured), were the first in the San Gabriel Valley to perform the less invasive TAVR procedure.
WATCHMAN – Innovative Stroke Risk Treatment
Huntington Hospital is the only facility in the San Gabriel Valley to offer the FDA-approved WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) device for patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) as an alternative to the lifelong use of warfarin or Novel Oral Anticoagulants (NOAC) for people with AFib not caused by a heart valve problem (also known as non-valvular AFib).
“The WATCHMAN device is a novel alternative for patients with non-valvular AFib at risk for a stroke, especially those with a compelling reason not to be on blood thinners. We provide over 2,000 catheterizations and electrophysiology procedures, and 42,000 non-invasive cardiac diagnostic procedures each year. I’m proud to now offer this safe and effective procedure to our patients seeking stroke risk treatment.”Alex Durairaj, MD, medical director of Cardiovascular Services, Huntington Hospital.
