Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Replacement
Learn How Our Skilled Cardiovascular Surgeons Can Help
Minimally invasive aortic valve surgery is a less traumatic alternative
to open heart surgery. This procedure is used to repair a valve that does
not fully close or open, which may impair your blood from flowing in and
out of your heart.
The procedure, risks, and benefits of aortic repair are similar to other
minimally invasive heart surgeries, such as
mitral valve replacement or repair. This operation can help relieve chest pain and shortness of breath, as
well as prevent further damage and heart failure.

What Is Aortic Valve Replacement Surgery?
The operation is performed under anesthesia, which means you will feel
no pain. It normally takes three to six hours and recovery time in the
hospital can last up to seven days. During this time medical professionals
will monitor your recovery to make sure your heart function is strong
and there are no complications.
The benefits of this procedure include:
- Minimizing scarring
- Less bleeding
- Less risk of failure or blood clots
- Reduced pain
- Reduced recovery time
