I thought I share this video illustrating the procedure I went through @ Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati Ohio. The LEAR Technique, or Robotic Assisted Minimal Invasive Mitral Valve repair video is from St. Joseph's Hospital Atlanta GA. Contains operation graphics. Do not watch after eating...

Hello All, Jesus bless all upcoming operations with success and quick recovery! I'm on my 8th day after Mitral Valve repair on 3/18 with minimal invasive Robotic assisted procedure. Recuperating at home. I was discharged from Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, OH on 3/23 six days latter. I would recommend the minimal invasive Robotic assisted procedure to anyone that qualifies. I'm 59 yrs. old. I feel great, like I can go back to normal activities, but of course, going to take it easy and follow Dr.'s instructions. Follow up in 2 weeks with Surgeon. I pray I will continue to heal promptly.
My operation @ Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati. Robot assisted, minimum invasive. I'm feeling great, they say I may be discharged by Thursday. Thank you Jesus, and excellent team @ Good Sam.

A quick decision to have my mitral valve repaired Thursday, operated yesterday: Now in recovery - WOW - Going through this I’m learning more about how perfect God designed the heart to give us life.
Jesus is great!
Thank you for prayers and good wish

My Heart Beating Strong!

Just signed up today. Diagnosed with a Mitral Valve Prolapse in 1977. Mostly asymptomatic except for occasional palpitations. Yearly check up with Cardiologist. Now I've been told I have
more regurgitation and it may be time for repairing the valve. I'm seeking more information including second opinion. Thank HVS.com for great information. I will be seeing my cardiologist again soon. Update follows.
