Heart Valve Program

If you need treatment for a heart valve condition, open heart surgery is no longer your only option. This includes replacing and repairing valves with minimally invasive procedures.

The interventional cardiologists and surgeons at the Smidt Heart Institute have performed more percutaneous mitral valve repairs and aortic valve replacements than at any other U.S. medical center. These physicians play a primary role in teaching these techniques to fellow practitioners around the world, and in directing the next wave of clinical studies. Your treatment plan will be tailored to your needs to ensure the best possible outcome.
