Your Mayo Clinic care team
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart conditions (cardiologists), doctors trained in treating children with heart conditions (pediatric cardiologists), heart surgeons (cardiovascular surgeons) and other doctors in a wide array of specialties work as a multidisciplinary team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
At Mayo Clinic, an experienced team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and others work together to diagnose and treat pulmonary valve disease.
Doctors at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. Doctors take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need.
Mayo cardiologists consider your pulmonary valve disease, its severity, your symptoms and your input when they create a customized treatment plan for you. Treatment may include monitoring, cardiac catheterization to repair the pulmonary valve, or surgery to repair or replace the pulmonary valve. Cardiac surgeons at Mayo Clinic have extensive experience in heart valve surgery.
