#1 In The Region

Penn surgeons have performed thousands of minimally invasive mitral valve repair procedures - more than any other hospital in Pennsylvania. Our experience translates to better outcomes for you.

Pioneering Treatments

Penn is leading the way for new options for heart valve repair and replacement – creating options for patients who have had to settle for “no options” in the past.

Minimally Invasive

Often there’s a better option than open-heart surgery. Penn’s valve specialists perform minimally invasive heart valve surgery for less pain, less risk of infection and faster recovery.

Information and Access

24/7 patient portal provides secure online access to most of your lab results, medications and health summaries. Communicate with your Penn physicians, request prescription renewals, and request physician referrals and pre-certifications.

Collaborative Care

Cardiologists and cardiac surgeons work as a team to carefully craft a care plan just for you. Whenever possible, valve repair is preferred to preserve your own heart valve and to avoid life-long blood thinning therapy.

Mitral Valve Prolapse and Mitral Valve Regurgitation

Certain diseases and age can cause mitral valve problems, the most common being mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve regurgitation – a condition which, if serious, may lead to heart failure. Penn Medicine offers the most advanced, minimally invasive approaches to mitral valve repair including robotic, endovascular, transcatheter and traditional surgeries. We use the latest devices and procedures, including MitraClip® – a recently approved device to treat patients suffering from degenerative mitral regurgitation who can't undergo open-heart surgery.
