Midwest Valve Institute
Heart valve disease is frequently referred to as a “mystery killer,” progressing slowly, showing few symptoms and often going undiagnosed and untreated. According to the Heart Valve Society of America, valve disease strikes approximately five million Americans each year. If left untreated, the condition can cause progressive deterioration in heart function, resulting in heart failure and premature death. Conversely, when appropriately diagnosed and treated, patients with valve disease have the potential for highly positive outcomes. Many patients who have had to limit their activities and adjust their lifestyles due to severe symptoms related to valve disease are able to return to normal lifestyles.
Midwest Heart Care, the area’s largest provider of heart care, now offers the Midwest Valve Institute, a treatment and referral resource dedicated to the diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of heart valve disease.
