Aortic valve replacement is a type of heart surgery performed to replace an aortic valve that doesn't function correctly, due to narrowing (stenosis) or leakage. When a valve is damaged beyond repair, it may be replaced with either a biological valve, or a mechanical valve. Your doctor will consult with you to decide which one is best based on an overall analysis of your individual risk. When considering any type of surgery, it is essential to find a trustworthy and reliable doctor. For over ten years, Dr. Allan Stuart, MD has performed successful cardiothoracic surgeries including valve replacement surgery, in the New York area.
Dr. Stuart is board certified by several medical associations including the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, American Heart Association and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. He is also clinically specialized to perform other thoracic surgeries including the rare valve sparing aortic root replacement surgery and complex aortic arch surgery. Being the Director of the Aortic Surgery Program at the world renowned Columbia University Medical Center, Dr. Stuart ensures his patients that they are receiving the best possible care.
Aortic valve replacement surgery is a complicated operation that should only be carried out by highly trained professionals. If you or a loved one living in New York is in need of a capable, qualified surgeon call Dr. Stuart today for a consultation.
