Mitral valve replacement surgery

A mitral valve replacement surgery may be in cases of mitral valve stenosis or regurgitation. The procedure is usually performed as an open heart surgery. During the operation the damaged valve is removed and a prosthesis is inserted in its place.

Sample Treatment Program


  • Blood work (CBC, SMAC, lipid profile, coagulation factors, electrolyte levels)
  • Stress Echocardiography
  • Cardiologist consultation

These investigations can be completed within 2 business days.


Cost of procedure depends on the type of prosthesis used. It will usually include 7 days of hospitalization (including one day in ICU), intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, and 2 weeks of post-discharge monitoring by the operating surgeon and treating cardiologist.

Please note that if preoperative investigations unveil evidence of coronary heart disease, a diagnostic coronary angiogram may be indicated.

When signs of coronary ischemia are detected, a combined surgery to replace the mitral valve and treat the coronary arteries may be performed.
