Combating Heart Valve Disease
When any of the heart's four valves breaks down, blood stops moving in the right direction. This puts the heart at risk for multiple complications. Patients need valve repair or valve replacement surgery. Mount Sinai Heart is an international destination for the treatment of heart valve diseases, from mitral valve prolapse to aortic stenosis. Our top cardiologists have invented devices and pioneered techniques used worldwide. We offer patients the most sophisticated diagnostic tools, such as remarkably clear 3D echocardiograms, for early and accurate detection.
