Mitral Valve Disease Program – Fort Worth

The Mitral Valve Disease Program, part of the Valve Disorders Center, is available to treat patients with mitral valve disease including mitral stenosis, mitral regurgitation, and mitral valve prolapse. Working together, interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons on the medical staff treat both degenerative mitral valve disease as well as functional mitral valve conditions.

Mitral valve disease intervention at the earliest stage is important. Early diagnosis can lead to an improved lifestyle, potentially lead to decreased dependence on blood thinners and could preserve heart function. In addition, stroke risk may be decreased if early intervention occurs.
