By Adam Pick on October 13, 2013
I am very happy to announce that the Columbia Heart Valve Center just launched a Heart Valve Clinic Microsite at HeartValveSurgery.com. Needless to say, we are thrilled to be working with Columbia’s incredible team which includes Dr. Craig Smith, Dr. Martin Leon, Dr. Mathew Williams and Dr. Susheel Kodali.
So you know, the Columbia Heart Valve Center, which is located in New York City, is one of the leading transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) clinics in the United States. Thus far, the Columbia Heart Valve Center has implanted over 900 TAVRs for aortic stenosis patients who are inoperable or at high risk. To learn more about the Columbia Heart Valve Center, please click here.
On behalf of our patient and caregiver community, I would like to thank all of the members of the Columbia Heart Valve Center — with a special thanks to Dr. Williams, Dr. Kodali, Lisa Hathaway, Patricia Knipper, Diane Amato and Deborah Schwarz.
Keep on tickin!

I had open heart surgery Sept. 1995 in New Haven, CT……my Aortic valve was replaced with a St. Jude mechanical valve that is now starting to falter. I was scheduled for a “redo” that was cancelled just before the surgery due to the fact that my surgeon did not feel that my condition was “critical enough” to do the surgery. I am 81 years old and feel rather certain that my age had something to do with that decision.
I have a copy of your book but it, of course, does not contain information that I can use for my situation. Have you acquired any information about replacement of previous mechanical Aortic valves?
