At the Valve Center at Methodist Heart Institute, our highly experienced cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and imaging specialists apply a multidisciplinary care approach to diagnose and repair heart valve and muscle abnormalities. We prioritize leading-edge, minimally invasive surgeries, in an effort to achieve the most positive outcomes and benefit you the most.
