The Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute is the largest cardiovascular practice in the U.S. No hospital in America sees more patients for heart and vascular conditions than Cleveland Clinic. Our caregivers have collectively seen it all and experienced it all.
What does that mean to you? It means that as a patient of Cleveland Clinic, you’ll have access to the broadest possible range of solutions from skilled, experienced doctors, nurses and technicians. Options you may not have in your home town – or anywhere else in America.
Cleveland Clinic continues to perform the largest number of valve surgeries in the United States. In 2010, Cleveland Clinic surgeons performed 2,912 valve surgeries, including 2,178 primary operations and 734 reoperations.
Minimally invasive surgery is the least invasive treatment for valvular heart disease. Cleveland Clinic is the leading center to use this approach with the lowest reported mortality.
Specific to aortic valve replacement surgery, hospital mortality at the Cleveland Clinic was 1.1 percent in 2010. This compares to the national average of 2.7 percent, as compiled by the national database of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
