At NYU Langone, our internationally recognized cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and imaging specialists work as a team to treat people with mitral valve disease, in which a major heart valve doesn’t function properly. As a result, people can experience fatigue, shortness of breath, swelling in the ankles and feet, and irregular heartbeat. Two of the main types of mitral valve disease are mitral valve regurgitation and mitral valve stenosis.
Doctors at our Heart Valve Center are pioneers in innovative procedures for the treatment of mitral valve disease, including minimally invasive mitral valve repair, robotic mitral valve repair, and transcatheter procedures. They have been performing minimally invasive mitral valve repair surgeries longer than doctors at any other program in the country. Our specialists have the expertise to manage these conditions through early intervention, minimizing the need for valve replacement and future surgeries.
Treatment of mitral valve disease may include surgery, which our specialists can often perform using minimally invasive and robotic-assisted techniques. Our doctors are also experts in transcatheter procedures to repair or replace the valve.
