People diagnosed with mitral valve disease — including prolapse of the mitral valve tissue, which causes mitral regurgitation — can benefit from mitral valve repair. This animation describes how cardiac surgeons at NYU Langone Medical Center repair degenerative mitral valve conditions using a minimally invasive robotic procedure.
NYU Langone’s Cardiac Surgery team is among the most experienced in the country at using minimally invasive techniques to repair the mitral valve and restore adequate function in the heart. NYU Langone is one of the only centers in the New York tri-state area to perform mitral valve repair robotically.
