Know Your Options


If you’ve been diagnosed with a valvular disease and are recommended for surgery, we encourage you to meet with one of our nationally recognized surgeons to learn about all your options – including minimally invasive procedures. He or she will give you a thorough assessment of your condition and make recommendations, which may or may not include surgery.

If you’re living with valvular disease and being treated medicinally, our surgeons can help you decide if interventional surgery will rectify your condition to help prevent long-term health problems such as congestive heart failure.

Do you need a 2nd Opinion?

  • You’ve been diagnosed with mitral valve or aortic valve disorders.
  • You’re being treated with medications but may benefit more significantly from a surgical solution.
  • You’ve already been treated with a procedure but continue to have problems.
  • You’ve been recommended for valve surgery but want to consider all options, including minimally invasive procedures.

To make a 2nd Opinion appointment with an SSM surgeon, please call 314-647-8269. It’s the best and easiest way to explore all of your options.
