Mitral Valve Repair

Swedish has long been a center of excellence and training center for minimally invasive cardiac valve surgery. We are one of the few centers in the Western United States to offer robotic mitral valve repair.

Depending on the reason for the mitral valve to leak, Swedish cardiac surgeons have over a 95% success rate in repairing the mitral valve. When necessary, the surgeons at Swedish are also skilled and experienced in robotic mitral valve replacement.

Our specially trained and highly experienced robotic surgery teams have performed over 4,000 robotic procedures. In choosing a surgeon who performs robotic mitral valve repair, be sure to ask:

  • How much experience do you and your team members (anesthesiologist, assistants, nurses, perfusionists and others) have with this procedure?
  • How long has robotic surgery been available at your hospital?
  • How many robotic surgeries are performed there?
  • What is your mitral valve repair rate?
