Valvular Heart Surgery
Valvular heart disease remains an integral part of our clinical practice. With an increasingly older population, interventions on the cardiac valves will inevitably increase.
We are developing and performing the latest techniques in aortic valve repair. If replacement is required, then a full armamentarium is at our disposal including mechanical, bioprosthetic (stented and stentless), allograft (“Homograft”), and the Ross procedure. Minimally invasive approaches to the aortic valve also are offered.
Because the benefits of mitral valve repair have been established, the latest repair techniques are used. In addition, minimally invasive approaches including robotic mitral valve repair are performed.
Research on new technologies or the treatment of heart diseases including percutaneous heart valve replacement are performed.
