Treating Mitral Valve Disease. Free Health Lecture.

People with mild mitral valve problems often live long, full lives and never require treatment. But once a diseased valve begins to affect your heart’s ability to pump blood, you may need a valve repair or replacement to prevent serious complications such as congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation, pulmonary hypertension or even death.

Come hear cardiovascular surgeon Daniel O’Hair, MD, describe common types of mitral valve disorders and ways to manage symptoms. He’ll then explain the latest options for repairing or replacing a problem mitral valve, including minimally invasive robotic-assisted mitral valve surgery.
