Mitral valve disease occurs when the valve between the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart doesn't work properly resulting in mitral valve regurgitation (leakage) or mitral valve stenosis.
The Steward Center for Advanced Cardiac Surgery is one of the fastest growing centers in the New England region for the treatment of heart valve disease. Our senior cardiac surgeons work side-by-side with St. Elizabeth’s cardiology team to provide integrated, coordinated care for our patients. In addition to providing high quality care, our multidisciplinary teams are experts in diagnosing and treating various mitral valve diseases.
Offering innovative surgical procedures, which can improve patient outcomes and reduce recovery times, is paramount at the Center for Advanced Cardiac Surgery. Depending on a patient’s treatment plan, we perform routine valve repairs and replacements or minimally invasive procedures, which use robotic-assisted approaches. Our rate of successful repair exceeds national norms and is amongst the highest in the country.
