Heart valve surgery is a procedure that aims to repair or replace damaged heart valves. Heart valves are responsible for regulating the flow of blood within the heart and throughout the body, and any damage or malfunction can lead to serious health problems. At Sterling Hospitals, our team of skilled cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons are experienced in performing heart valve surgery, and are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to our patients.
The three main types of valve disease are stenosis, regurgitation, and prolapse.
Before undergoing heart valve surgery, patients will undergo a thorough evaluation to determine the extent of the valve damage and the most appropriate course of treatment. This may include imaging tests such as echocardiography, as well as blood tests and other diagnostic procedures.

After heart valve surgery, patients will typically spend several days in the hospital for monitoring and recovery. It is important to follow the doctor's instructions for post-operative care, including taking medications as prescribed, monitoring for any signs of complications, and following a healthy diet and exercise plan.
