Studies recommend mitral valve repair instead of mitral valve replacement for most patients. Repairs reduce your risks of complications and decrease time spent in the hospital. Yet a study by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons revealed that only 50 percent of isolated mitral valve surgeries done today are repairs. One reason for this is that mitral valve repairs are a more intricate and detailed surgery, and not all surgeons have mastered the technique required for successful outcomes. At Hoag, mitral valve repairs are our specialty.
