A Winning Team

To achieve optimal outcomes, Procirca employs integrated teams of bioengineers, cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, and clinical nurses. Our team credentials and experience include:

  • Expertise with more than 13 MCS technologies
  • Support of more than 1,600 MCS cases totaling more than 750 years of patient support days
  • Delivered more than 100 surgical training courses
  • National and international program support

Our teams have been involved with the early adoption and expert use of first-generation pulsatile blood pumps as well as second- and third-generation blood pumps. We can work independently with new clinical centers or on behalf of VAD manufacturers to develop site-specific clinical protocols and training programs. Procirca is available around the clock to provide on-site support for implants and clinical events. As a result, our engineers are able to provide feedback to manufacturers about how to improve their devices, consoles, and processes—which ultimately improves patient care.
