SLUCare's team of specially trained cardiac anesthesiologists use the latest diagnostic tools available to care for you during your heart procedure, including transesophageal echocardiography to assess the overall function of the heart's chambers and valves.

Transesophageal echocardiography can determine the presence of some types of heart disease, including valvular disease, myocardial disease, pericardial disease and congenital heart disease. SLUCare cardiac anesthesiologists use this information to provide you with the best care possible during and after your surgery.
