Aortic valve surgery is a surgery performed to treat aortic valve stenosis, aortic valve regurgitation, commonly bicuspid valves and other congenital aortic valve diseases. In other words, it is a surgery done to repair or replace the aortic valve. Also known as Aortic Valvuloplasty, it can be performed in two ways- minimally invasive or open. The recovery time ranges from a few weeks to several months depending upon the patient’s health. A cardiac surgeon determines whether the patient’s condition requires surgery or any other treatment.
At Care Hospitals, cardiac surgeons work in a multidisciplinary manner with other cardiologists and health care professionals to offer comprehensive care to patients with different types of heart valve diseases.
