Minimal invasive mitral valve surgery

Posted By Mike D. on February 11, 1999 at 14:41:38:







   I have recently been told by my cardiologist that I have severe mitral valve
regurgitation and need surgery.I am interested in knowing the requirements to
be a candidate for the minimal invasive mitral valve surgery.Can this surgery be done
for repair or replacement? I am also in atrial fib. is there anything that can be done to
correct this during surgery? My cardiologist is associated with Lankenau Hospital in
Wynnwood, Pa. are there surgeons there or in the area that are proficent with the
minimal invasive surgery? I am 65 years old in very good physical comdition.
Thank you very much;
