Most people have no idea of the vital importance of four tiny valves in the heart. So long as these four valves function as they should, blood flows properly and oxygen is delivered throughout the body. Yet, if something goes awry with your heart valves, it can present a dangerous situation. That is why it is so important to detect valve conditions as early as possible and apply best practice medical treatments.
The team of cardiologists and surgeons at the Heart Hospital at Saint Francis is committed to the comprehensive treatment of heart valve disease. A patient's initial evaluation in the Heart Valve Program includes a full assessment, with a determination of whether or not an intervention is necessary, and if so, which procedure is most appropriate for the patient's specific condition.
