Is it true that coronary artery disease impacts up to 27% of heart valve patients? Can coronary artery disease cause life-threatening conditions including heart attacks? Is it possible for surgeons to use minimally-invasive techniques to treat both coronary artery disease and heart valve defects in one operation?

To answer these important questions, I just interviewed Dr. Husam Balkhy, the Director of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Cardiac Surgery at University of Chicago Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. Watch my interview with Dr. Balkhy to learn critical information about coronary artery disease and heart valve disorders at this link.
