New to managing your heart valve condition?
We encourage you to take some time to learn how your heart works and how each of the valves function. When you understand the specifics of what your doctor or healthcare team is trying to evaluate and accomplish through treatment, you’ll be better equipped to help make great decisions.

On each page featured at the right, we have helpful media along with tips from people who have walked the journey to wellness.

Valve disease treatment plans can be detailed and with complex factors determining who might be a candidate for valve repair or valve replacement. We want to help you be a well-prepared participant in your treatment decisions!
