minimal invasive valve replacement surgery

  My 80 year old mother is suffering from severe aortic stenosis.  Valve replacement surgery has been recommended.  She is in a frail state with senile dementia.  We heard about miniimally invasive valve replacement surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.  Is this in anyway affiliated with the clinic by the same name in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl?  Also, would you know if this procedure is performed in N.Y., CA or Florida where we have close relatives.  We already have an article about the surgery from your clinic.
  Thanking you in advance, I am,
  Very truly yours,
  Sandra Marcus

Dear Sandra,
We are indeed affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic Florida.  If it is a serious case however I would recommend the surgery to be done here in Ohio at the main campus with follow-up care in Flordia.  This is commonly done and would not present a problem.
