Providing the best care for patients with heart valve disease requires the close collaboration of different types of heart specialists. The UCSF Heart Valve Disease Clinic brings together interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons to offer expert, comprehensive care.

Early treatment is critical with valve disease. Our surgeons have tremendous success in performing mitral valve repairs in patients with early-stage disease. We are also highly experienced in performing valvuloplasty to repair heart valves with narrowed openings.

We provide patients with advanced valve disease a quantitative assessment of valve function before beginning appropriate treatment. Cardiologists and cardiac surgeons who specialize in valvular heart disease evaluate each patient and make a joint decision on the best treatment approach. Treatments may include non-surgical therapies, catheter-based procedures, or surgery.
