Sharp offers minimally invasive valve surgery, MAZE procedures and aortic valve surgery.
Your heart has four valves — mitral, tricuspid, aortic and pulmonary — which ensure that blood flows in only one direction through the heart. Heart valve disease occurs when one or more heart valves do not work correctly, which can damage your heart over time.
Sharp specializes in the surgical treatment of heart valve disease. Our affiliated surgeons have extensive experience in mitral valve, aortic and tricuspid valve repair and replacement.
