Have you heard of University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC)? It is the heart of the University of Maryland Medical System's downtown campus. The hospital provides comprehensive care for the West Baltimore community and tertiary care for Maryland and the surrounding area. The hospital has more intensive care beds than any other hospital in Maryland.

University of Maryland Medicine offers a number of specialty services and they have departments and divisions from cancer care to organ transplantation to advanced orthopaedic procedures. They have many programs designed to meet the unique health needs of special populations.

Mitral Valve Surgery is one of their specialty services at the Maryland Heart Center. They specialize in the surgical treatment of valvular disease including mitral valve repair surgery. Mitral valve repair is used to treat regurgitation (leakage) or stenosis (narrowing) of the mitral valve. Traditionally, surgeons have treated mitral valve disease by removing the diseased valve and implanting an artificial valve (mitral valve replacement). To find out if you're a candidate for mitral valve repair and/or minimally invasive mitral valve repair surgery, please call 410-328-5842 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.
