Heart Valve Surgery

With heart valve disease, one or more of the four heart valves that keep blood flowing in the correct direction through your heart do not function properly.

During heart valve surgery, the cardiovascular surgeon repairs or replaces the dysfunctional valve or valves. Diseases that may be treated by heart valve surgery include: Aortic valve disease, Mitral valve disease, Pulmonary valve disease, and Tricuspid valve disease.
