New York, New York (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
HeartValveSurgery.com, the largest online resource for patients with heart valve disease, announced today the launch of a Heart Valve Clinic Microsite featuring The Mount Sinai Medical Center and its Mitral Valve Repair Reference Center.
The microsite provides patients and their caregivers a simple interface with extensive multimedia capabilities -- virtual tours, patient success stories, surgeon videos -- to help users learn about The Mount Sinai Medical Center and its unique approach to treating heart valve disorders including aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation.
“We are honored to launch this microsite with Dr. David Adams and his team at The Mount Sinai Medical Center,” notes Adam Pick, founder of HeartValveSurgery.com, author of The Patient’s Guide To Heart Valve Surgery and a double heart valve surgery patient. “My inbox is overflowing with positive feedback from patients who had successful mitral valve repairs and aortic valve replacements at Mount Sinai."
With its new 'Cardiac Clinics' section of the website, HeartValveSurgery.com now offers patients a trusted, end-to-end platform for learning about heart valve surgery. The platform includes a book, a blog, a surgeon locator, a clinic directory, educational videos, and a social network. During 2011, HeartValveSurgery.com received 1.2 million visits while expanding its online library to over 10,000 pages of free information.
“HeartValveSurgery.com educates and empowers patients and their caregivers,” notes Dr. David Adams, the Chairman of Cardiothoracic Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, “The microsite is one more application that demonstrates the unique ways HeartValveSurgery.com supports patients experiencing serious valvular issues. I strongly recommend this website to my patients.”
