New pioneering heart valve procedure performed by HeartCare Partners

The HCP Wesley Team

Congratulations to the HeartCare Partners' Structural Heart Team at The Wesley Hospital who performed their first minimally invasive mitral valve repair procedure using the MitraClip System.

The procedure, performed by Dr Sam Hayman, A/Prof Gregory Scalia, Dr Anthony Camuglia and Dr Terri Hall, was a first for Brisbane private hospitals; utilising this innovative technology to perform pioneering keyhole heart valve procedures.

The procedure allows patients with mitral heart valve disease, who cannot undergo open heart surgery, an innovative keyhole method of fixing a leaking heart valve.

Free exercise camps are coming to the Fraser Coast and Bundaberg.

We are delighted to share with you a new community initiative designed to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community called, ‘Live Life Get Active’ (LLGA), proudly supported by GenesisCare. LLGA is a national exercise and nutrition program co-founded by Olympian Jane Flemming OAM.

GenesisCare, providers of heart care and cancer care, have teamed up with LLGA to provide FREE exercise camps on the Fraser Coast (Bill Fraser Park) and in Bundaberg (Alexandra Park) starting at the end of April. Locals are encouraged to have fun whilst getting fit in the beautiful surroundings of the parks.

GenesisCare CEO – Dan Collins says “Our vision is transforming lives through treating the patient as a whole, not just the disease. The partnership with Live Life Get Active will see patients and their families directly linked into an exercise and nutrition program to enhance their health outcomes, reduce stress and measure success.”  

Exercise is such an important part of a happy, healthy life. It has not only a positive effect on a person’s physical well-being but also their mental health,” said Jane Flemming OAM.

The camps are open to the whole community for free, and is a great opportunity to exercise with friends, meet new people and to have some fun!
