Heart valve stenosis, or stiffness, can restrict the flow of blood from your heart through your body. Our goal is to relieve your symptoms and help you return to daily activities.

Overview

Our cardiovascular surgeons may recommend commissurotomy, a procedure in which we make incisions in your heart valve flaps to increase your blood flow. This repair may lower your risk for infection, decrease your need for the life-long use of blood thinning medication, and maintain your heart’s pumping strength.
