“HeartValveSurgery.com provides an easy connection between us and our patients. It is comforting to the patients to have a direct source of reliable information,” stated Dr. Sabet Hashim, Chairman of Cardiac Surgery and Co-Physician in Chief of the Hartford HealthCare Heart & Vascular Institute. “It also makes access to our practice easier for patients to self-refer.”

Specific to heart valve therapy, Hartford HealthCare provides patients a wide range of treatment options for stand-alone valvular defects and complex multi-valve disease.  Hartford HealthCare also treats related cardiac conditions including atrial fibrillation, aortic aneurysms and coronary artery disease.

Hartford HealthCare specializes in minimally-invasive surgical and transcatheter approaches to treating valvular disease including aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation. “We want our patients to recover quickly with the least amount of discomfort possible,” states Dr. Hashim. “For that reason, we developed minimally-invasive techniques that provide long-term, durable outcomes for heart valve repair and heart valve replacement procedures.”

 

Hartford HealthCare Microsite Launches at HeartValveSurgery.com

To help educate patients at HeartValveSurgery.com learn about Hartford HealthCare and its approach to all forms of surgical and interventional valve therapies, we just launched a new Hartford HealthCare microsite at this link.
