Anton Lishmanov, MD, PhD, FSCAI, RPVI

Ashchi Heart & Vascular Center PhotoDr. Anton Lishmanov is an endovascular and structural heart disease cardiologist. As a structural heart cardiologist, he specializes in the evaluation, detection and treatment of heart valve disease — heart murmurs, congenitally malformed valves, “blocked” or stenosed valves; “leaky” or insufficient/regurgitant valves as well as failed or malfunctioning prosthetic heart valves. He also specializes in repairing defects or “holes” in the heart such as atrial septal defect (ASD), patent foramen ovale (PFO) or patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). These defects or abnormal valves can be congenital or caused by disease such as “wear and tear.”

Dr. Lishmanov  is by far one of the best-trained structural heart disease experts in Northeast Florida having performed a large volume of complex to simple coronary procedures in some of the finest teachings centers in the USA. His training includes an internal medicine residency at the University of Missouri followed by an advanced fellowship in cardiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a Cardiac Critical Care Fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center and an Advanced Interventional Cardiovascular Fellowship with endovascular and structural heart experience at the prestigious University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

Since his arrival to Jacksonville he is on the forefront of the structural heart disease innovations. He was the first interventional cardiologist to perform complex Mitral Valve in Valve (ViV) and Mitral Valve in Ring (ViR) procedures at Memorial Hospital Jacksonville. He was also the first one to perform repair of the Aortic Perivalvular leak (PVL) at Memorial Hospital as well.

He is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, cardiac critical care medicine, interventional cardiology and endovascular medicine. He is fluent in English and Russian.
