What Sets Us Apart
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. Two of the main types 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 performed more than 5,000 minimally invasive mitral valve repair procedures and maintain a large database to track outcomes over time. Our specialists have the expertise to manage these conditions through early intervention, minimizing the need for valve replacement and future surgeries.
Treatment at NYU Langone
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, in which a metal clip is implanted to correct mitral valve regurgitation and a balloon is inserted to correct mitral valve stenosis.
