This information is assembled by W. L. Gore & Associates as a reference for locating implanting physicians who are Gore-certified on GORE® CARDIOFORM Septal Occluder for PFO closure procedures.

Certified implanters of the GORE® CARDIOFORM Septal Occluder for PFO closure procedures may not necessarily be the only individuals who perform PFO closure and this list does not mean that other physicians lack the qualifications to perform this procedure. 

No physician or institution has been paid or received a fee to be included in this reference list.

W. L. Gore & Associates is not responsible for the medical advice or care provided by any physicians included in these lists, and is not responsible to you or any third parties for any decisions or actions taken in reliance on the information provided here.

In addition to the list above, other interventional cardiologists may perform PFO closures or know other physicians who perform PFO closures.
