The California Center for Cardiothoracic Surgery Specializes in Heart Valve Replacement Surgery
Date:3/12/2010

LOS ANGELES, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- For patients who are living with a heart problem, the option of surgical treatment can be just as terrifying as their current condition. From aortic aneurysms to Heart Valve Replacement Surgery, Open Heart Surgery is a serious procedure that has definite risks to the patient's health. However, with a great team of talented and experienced cardiothoracic surgeons, patients who need heart valve replacement surgery can go into surgery feeling confident. At the California Center for Cardiothoracic Surgery, our team of renowned cardiothoracic surgeons specializes in open heart surgery, including heart valve replacement surgery.

With nearly fifty years of heart surgery experience between them, Dr. Gharavi and Dr. Mohammadzadeh have been helping patients from across California overcome heart and thoracic diseases through careful diagnosis and thoughtful, thorough treatment. Patients facing Heart Valve Replacement Surgery should know that they have two different options: biological heart valve replacement surgery and mechanical heart valve replacement surgery. Biological heart valve replacement surgery involves either a cow or pig heart valve to replace the patient's faulty valve. The downside to having biological heart valve replacement surgery is that a cow or pig's heart valve will wear out in ten to fifteen years since those animals do not live as long lives as humans. Mechanical heart valve replacement surgery will last forever, but the downside is that patients require blood thinner medication for the rest of their life to ensure the mechanical valve keeps working properly and does not clog.

With an experienced staff of surgeons who specialize in Heart Valve Replacement Surgery, the California Center for Cardiothoracic Surgery helps advise their patients which heart valve replacement surgery is best for their situation. Their surgeons not only have the highest survival rates of any other cardiac specialist in California, they also scored highest on a state report card on heart surgery in 2009. For patients who need to place their life in the hands of a surgeon for heart valve replacement surgery, Dr. Gharavi and Dr. Mohammadzadeh are two of the best specialists available.
