Southern California Surgical Center (heart411.com) Specializes in Mitral Valve Replacement
Date:7/27/2009

LOS ANGELES, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Cardiothoracic Surgery Center specializes in cardiothoracic surgery including mitral valve replacement. Fatigue shortness of breath and coughing might not seem like serious symptoms. In fact, most people brush off these seemingly minor symptoms and avoid visiting the doctor. Unfortunately, these simple symptoms can be indications of the need for mitral valve replacement - an open heart surgery that hundreds of thousands of Americans must undergo every year.

Going to the doctor with symptoms of fatigue and coming home diagnosed with mitral valve issues is a frightening reality for many. Southern California residents who are facing the prospect of mitral valve surgery are finding an excellent resource in the California Cardiothoracic Surgery Center. Led by board certified cardiothoracic surgeons Dr. Mohammad A. Gharavi and Dr. Gholam R. Mohammadzadeh, The California Cardiothoracic Surgery Center is a highly specialized group of surgeons with the latest information and treatment options for mitral valve disorders. The highly trained, board-certified surgeons, a stellar track record for patient care, and multiple affiliations with top local hospitals make the Center a leading choice for mitral valve replacement surgery and consultation.

The need for mitral valve replacement surgery can stem from a number of factors, including lifestyle, genetics and disease. Rheumatic fever, bacterial infections and general wear and tear are common causes for mitral valve replacement surgery, although congenital defects can prompt the need for the procedure as well. The mitral valve is located in the upper left portion of the heart, and controls the flow of blood into the heart after being oxygenated by the lungs. Mitral valve replacement can be caused both by the mitral valve not closing enough and by the mitral valve not opening enough.

Mitral valve replacement can be completed with either a mechanical valve replacement or a biological valve replacement from a pig or a cow. There are drawbacks and benefits to both of the mitral valve replacement options, and speaking with a qualified cardiothoracic surgeon is the best way to determine which option is correct for each individual.

With cutting edge medical technology and an impressive team of doctors, the California Cardiothoracic Surgery Center is one of the foremost specialists in Southern California. For more information call 800-HEART91 or visit http://www.heart411.com.
