Robotic Heart Valve Repair Surgery

Treatment Option

NewYork-Presbyterian surgeons perform robotically assisted heart surgery in select patients with mitral valve disease.

Surgery for Mitral Valve Disease

The three-dimensional visualization and technical precision of robotic assistance has improved surgeons' ability to perform difficult procedures through small incisions with greater accuracy.

Compared to traditional heart surgery, which requires an incision through the middle of the sternum (breast bone) and may require a fairly lengthy recuperation, robotic approaches for mitral valve surgery utilize only small incisions in the chest. These less traumatic approaches cause less scarring, shorten the hospital stay, and are associated with a faster recovery time.
