Since Dr. Yeung joined the faculty of UNC Cardiology in September 2012, he has been instrumental in successfully treating cardiac patients with structural heart procedures that are less invasive and have a much quicker recovery than traditional open-heart repairs. His procedural specialties include repair of atrial septal defect, mitral valvuloplasty, and use of MitraClip to treat degenerative mitral regurgitation. Dr. Yeung’s research focuses on treatment for STEMI heart attacks, coronary artery disease, and aortic valve stenosis.
Dr. Yeung is a leader of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease clinic, which treats adults who are suffering from a congenital heart condition. His goal is to help these patients live a longer, more productive life by providing care to patients with PFO (patent foramen ovale), valve disorders, cyanotic heart disease, and other coronary artery abnormalities.
