Webinar Announcement: “Advances in Aortic Valve And Aortic Aneurysm Surgery” with Dr. Stewart & Me on July 17!
By Adam Pick on July 8, 2014
[Update: Please note that Dr. Allan Stewart no longer performs surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital.]
Did you know that approximately 40% of all heart valve operations focus on the aortic valve? And… Did you know that many of those procedures include the simultaneous treatment of bulging aortic aneurysms due to conditions like aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation and bicuspid aortic valves?
For these reasons, I will be hosting an educational webinar titled, “Advances in Aortic Valve and Aortic Aneurysm Surgery”, with Dr. Allan Stewart, the Director of Aortic Surgery and Co-Director of the Heart Valve Center at Mount Sinai Hospital. This live, one-hour event is scheduled for Thursday, July 17, at 1:00pm EST. During the webinar, Dr. Stewart and I will share important details about the symptoms, the risks, the surgical options, patient success stories and the latest advances in aortic valve and aneurysm therapy.

I forgot to mention… During the webinar, you will have an opportunity to ask Dr. Stewart your questions in real-time. That said, this is an excellent opportunity to get all of your questions answered!
So you know… During his career, Dr. Stewart has performed over 2,000 heart valve procedures. Dr. Stewart specializes in the treatment of aortic valve disorders and aortic root reconstruction. You should also know that Dr. Stewart has successfully performed surgery on over 100 patients from our community including Jim Leavitt, Penny Goldsmith, and Mark Lampersberger.
I look forward to talking with you during the webinar!
Keep on tickin!

My valve is a pig valve put in in 2003. My Dr. says the normal time is 10 years but mine seems to be working fine. I wonder about that as I have COPD an that Dr. says my lungs are doing pretty good, but I have been getting out of breath quite easy & I don’t think it is my lungs, but has something to do with the valve. Can the valve cause me to get out of breath real easy
