Our Surgical Outcomes
Outcomes of mitral valve repair should be measured by operative survival, durability, and long-term survival. Yale is a high-volume mitral valve center, with its surgeons performing over 250 mitral valve operations annually. Dr. Geirsson, a skilled mitral valve surgeon, leads the program carrying out over 100 mitral valve operations per year. Most of these operations are done with the use of the DaVinci robot. The robotic mitral valve repair program is widely recognized for excellent outcomes with 0% 30-day mortality and 100% repair rates.
