Mitral Valve Disease Treatments
After our evaluation, our team meets to discuss your case and customize a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Our physicians have unmatched expertise in transcatheter procedures for mitral valve disease, having performed nearly 100 such procedures since 2013. Henry Ford is one of a handful of centers in the U.S. that performs these procedures.
We may recommend one or a combination of treatment options, depending on your overall health and the severity of your symptoms:
3D imaging and printing
We create an exact replica of your heart to precisely plan your procedure ahead of time. Our team uses the latest 3D technology to model your heart, shortening your procedure time. That means safer treatment, less pain and a faster recovery. Read about how we use 3D imaging and printing in our treatment planning at Henry Ford.
Minimally invasive heart valve replacement
Our heart specialists are pioneering the latest techniques for replacing heart valves using a catheter (thin, flexible tube inserted through a blood vessel) rather than open-heart surgery. Find out more about our expertise in minimally invasive heart valve replacement.
Minimally invasive heart valve repair
We specialize in a catheter-based procedure that uses a tiny device called a MitraClip® to repair mitral valve prolapse and regurgitation. Learn more about minimally invasive heart valve repair for mitral diseases.
Although medications cannot cure mitral valve disease, they can help minimize your symptoms in the early stages. We can help you manage symptoms and lower your risk of complications with medications and some lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and smoking cessation.
