M. Rizwan Sardar, MD, FACC, FSCAI, is an experienced Medical Director with a demonstrated history of working in the hospital & health care industry. Dr. Sardar is a skilled operator for structural heart disease and complex, high-risk coronary intervention. He successfully developed Aultman Hospital’s structural heart disease program offering a range of services. Dr. Sardar has also worked with various educational institutions to help train other structural heart cardiologists and valve vendors. 

As a structural heart cardiologist, he specializes in evaluating, detecting, and treating heart valve disease, including 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 diseases such as “wear and tear.”

We are very fortunate to have Dr. Sardar on our team. By far, he is one of the best-trained structural heart disease experts in Northeast Florida, having performed a large volume of coronary procedures in some of the country’s finest teaching centers.
