The New Brunswick Aorta Clinic specializes in advanced procedures like aortic valve replacement, a crucial intervention for individuals with aortic valve issues. This surgical undertaking addresses critical issues affecting the aortic valve's functionality, such as severe stenosis or significant regurgitation, which impede proper blood flow through the heart.
The surgery involves replacing a damaged or malfunctioning aortic valve with a new, artificial valve. At the New Brunswick Aorta Clinic, our team of highly skilled cardiovascular surgeons conducts this intricate operation with precision and expertise. Through a careful incision in the chest or utilizing minimally invasive techniques, the diseased valve is removed, and a prosthetic valve, made of either biological or mechanical materials, is meticulously placed in its position.
The choice between a mechanical or biological valve depends on various factors, including age, lifestyle, and individual health considerations. Mechanical valves are durable but necessitate blood-thinning medication for life, while biological valves don't require lifelong medication but might need replacement after some years.
Our commitment to personalized care is evident throughout the surgical process. Our surgical team tailors each procedure to meet the unique needs of our patients, ensuring optimal outcomes while emphasizing comfort and a swift recovery post-surgery.
The New Brunswick Aorta Clinic places paramount importance on patient education. We provide in-depth information about the surgical procedure, post-operative care, including medication and physical activity guidelines, and the long-term management of heart health.
Our aim at the New Brunswick Aorta Clinic is to deliver exceptional aortic valve replacement surgeries, blending advanced surgical techniques with compassionate care, ultimately enhancing cardiac well-being and significantly improving the quality of life for our patients.
