Many patients in our community do their homework. For example, Janet Ruddock knew she wanted a mitral valve repair not a mitral valve replacement procedure. Janet suffered from mitral regurgitation. She favored a mitral valve repair for several reasons including a return to normal life expectancy, no blood thinner use, and freedom from re-operation. Janet also did a lot of research prior to selecting Dr. Patrick McCarthy as her surgeon.
