When diagnosed with mitral valve disease, patients can be confused and misinformed about how to get the best treatment. To make matters worse, many cardiologists DO NOT know the latest research and techniques used to treat broken mitral valves.
For this reason, I hosted a “Surgeon Roundtable” with Dr. Michael Acker, Dr. Pavan Atluri and Dr. Michael Ibrahim from Penn Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During this special interview, these leading cardiac surgeons debunked 6 mitral valve surgery myths to help you get the best outcome!
Many thanks to our “Mitral Valve Myth Busting Team” of Dr. Michael Acker, Dr. Pavan Atluri and Dr. Michael Ibrahim from Penn Medicine for taking time away from their busy practices to educate our patient community!
