Jane just asked me a great question about two different surgical approaches for mitral valve repair surgery. Jane wrote to me, “Hi Adam – Is open chest or robotic surgery better for mitral valve repair?”
To provide Jane an expert response, I connected with Dr. Arnar Geirsson, the Chief of Cardiac Surgery at Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut.
Many thanks to Dr. Geirsson for taking time away from his busy practice at Yale New Haven Hospital to share his clinical experiences and research with our community.
