What is Valve Replacement?

Valve Replacement Surgery is the replacement of one or more of the heart valves with either an artificial heart valve or a bioprosthesis. It is an alternative to valve repair.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Valve Replacement Surgery involves the removal of the heart valve and replacing it with a mechanical valve, or a valve made from cow, pig or human heart tissue (biological tissue valve). Biological valves often eventually need to be replaced, as they degenerate over time.

Who is the Right Doctor for Valve Replacement?

The right doctor to consult for Valve Replacement is a Cardiac Surgeon.

  • Surgery cost (cost is different for different types of the valve)
  • Type of Valve (2 variables are available - Mechanical valve and Tissue Valve) Post-Operative cost (depends on the number of follow-up sessions)
  • Medicine cost (blood thinners, antibiotics, etc.)
  • Patient's hospital stay.
