Mitral Valve Surgery

Bridgeport Hospital cardiac surgeons perform complex mitral valve surgeries, with a strong emphasis on mitral valve repair. Our treatment plan is tailored to a patient’s needs.

Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery

Patients needing mitral valve repair may be candidates for minimally invasive valve repair surgery. We perform minimally invasive mitral valve surgery through a small incision in the right chest. Patient benefits include smaller incisions, less pain, lower risk of infection and bleeding, no splitting of the breast bone, a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery. Bridgeport Hospital cardiac surgeons will determine your eligibility for safe and effective use of the minimally invasive approach to repair your defective mitral valve

Mitral Valve Surgery with Other Heart Procedures

A more traditional (open) type operation is performed for patients also needing additional heart procedures such as coronary artery bypass or aortic valve replacement.
