I’m excited to announce that our LIVE and FREE patient education events continue this Thursday, November 11 at 6pm EST, with a special webinar, “Advances in Mitral Valve Surgery”.  The featured speakers are Dr. Joanna Chikwe, the Chair of Cardiac Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the #3 ranked heart hospital according to U.S. News & World Report, Wendy Spector, a mitral valve patient, and me.

 

Mitral Valve Webinar with Dr. Joanna Chikwe

 

During this online event, you will learn answers to important questions including:

  • What is mitral valve disease? How does it progress? What are the symptoms? What are the risks?
  • What are the different techniques used to repair or replace a diseased mitral valve?
  • Why should patients know about the advantages of mitral valve repair?
  • How are new minimally-invasive and non-invasive devices helping patients? How might new clinical trials transform the future of mitral valve treatment?
  • What actionable advice does Dr. Chikwe have for patients with mitral valve disease?

We will also have an interactive “Questions & Answers” session where YOU can ask your questions to Dr. Chikwe. This is going to be great!

Keep on tickin!
