Make an Appointment

Heart valve surgery is the most recommended surgery for treating diseases related to heart valves. Best heart valve surgeons perform heart valve surgery to treat the defects of the heart valves — aortic, pulmonary, bicuspid, and tricuspid.


Heart valves are affected in ways


1. Regurgitation

2. Stenosis

  • Regurgitation happens when the valve leaflets do not close completely. Regurgitation causes the blood ejected by the heart to flow back into it.
  • Stenosis happens when the valve leaflets become stiff, thick, inflexible, and fused. It leads to the narrowing of the heart valve and limits the flow of blood.

When is immediate treatment required?

Defects in the heart valves lead to shortness of breath, chest pain, giddiness, fatigue, rapid weight gain, and swelling in the feet. Immediate treatment is essential on the onset of these symptoms to save the heart and other organs from damage.

What are the symptoms that necessitate valve surgery?

Some of the most common symptoms include:



What are the ways to identify and diagnose the requirement of valve surgery?

With the help of a stethoscope, the doctor can hear an unusual sound called a heart murmur. Depending on the location, how it sounds, and the rhythms it possesses, the doctor can determine the type of valve affected. Not just that, but the doctor can identify if the valve is causing a backflow (regurgitation) of blood or if it is blocked (stenosis).

How is valve surgery performed ?


Aortic Valve Repair/Mitral Valve Repair

Typically suggested in cases where the aortic valve is regurgitating. In this procedure, the doctors reshape the leaflets. It allows an easy closure and opening of the aortic valve. If the aortic valve is damaged and needs replacement, then that is also carried out.

Valve Sparing Aortic Root Replacement

The aortic root shows a bulge in the blood vessel due to the weakening of the aortic root wall. The best aortic valve replacement surgeons at our hospital repair and re-implant the aortic valve very efficiently.

Bentall Procedure

The best aortic valve replacement surgeons of our hospital get hold of the defective ascending aorta. Then, they remove and replace it. Not just that, they also re-implant the coronary arteries.

Pediatric Surgeries for Congenital Heart Diseases

Defects found in children include:

Atrial Septal Defect :

Minimal Invasive techniques can help correct the Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). With the help of stitches or a patch, the Atrial Septum is closed. A wire gets inserted into the blood vessel leading to the heart. The septal defect gets closed using only two clamshell devices.

Ventricular Septal Defect:

VSD occurs at the age of 1. With the help of a patch, the best heart valve surgeons can close the septal defect.

Tetralogy of Fallot :

We are the best hospital for heart valve surgery. Because as crucial as repair of the Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is, we make sure to restore the blood flow to the lungs with the help of a patch on the right ventricle.

TAPVR correction :

In Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return correction, the pulmonary veins are routed to the left side of the heart. All the abnormal connections get closed.

TAPVR correction :

In Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return correction, the pulmonary veins are routed to the left side of the heart. All the abnormal connections get closed.

Complete AV Canal Defect:

ASD with VSD is a Complete AV Canal Defect. It involves closure of the two and division of the single AV valve into left and right portions.

1.Fontan Procedure

The complex deformity found in the heart of children needs the Fontan procedure. It requires single chamber palliation.

2.Arterial Switch Operation

It occurs in a condition when the pulmonary artery gets placed on the left side, and the aorta is on the right side. The best hospital for heart valve surgery changes the position of the two and corrects the anatomy in the infants.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of aortic stenosis surgery ranges between 3,00,000 to 5,00,000 INR. It differs from city to city.

Heart valve disease treatment usually involves heart valve replacement surgery.

MIDCAB stands for Minimally Invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass. It is also referred to as keyhole heart surgery. This treatment is for Coronary Heart Disease.

With the help of a stethoscope, the doctor listens to the heart murmur. Then, the doctor advises 2D Echocardiography. The procedure provides images of the heart chambers and valves to help understand the blockage (stenosis) of the aortic valve.

There are four valves in the heart. Aortic, Pulmonary, Tricuspid, and Mitral valves.

      The aortic valve rests in between the left ventricle and the aorta.
      The pulmonary valve rests in between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery.
  • The tricuspid valve rests in between the right atrium and the right ventricle.
  • The mitral valve rests in between the left atrium and the left ventricle.
