About Dr. Christopher Burke,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Christopher Burke and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Michigan in 2011. To date, I have performed approximately 1,500 cardiac surgeries, of which 1,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at UW Medicine Heart Institute. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is an innovative approach towards the treatment of aortic valvular disease.
I am a strong proponent of valve-sparing approaches and valve repair for certain aortic conditions. I also started an adult Ross Procedure program at UW Medicine for the treatment of young and middle-aged adults with aortic valvular pathologies not amenable to valve repair. This program has quickly become one of the highest volume Ross Procedure programs in the Western United States.
