Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
HeartValveSurgery.com, the largest online resource for patients needing heart valve treatment, announced today the launch of a new 'Heart Valve Clinic Microsite' featuring the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California.
USC's heart valve microsite provides patients and their caregivers an intuitive interface with robust multimedia capabilities (virtual tours, patient success stories, surgeon profiles, hospital downloads, etc.) to help users learn about the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California and its unique approach to treating all types of heart valve disease including narrow heart valves (e.g. aortic stenosis) and heart valves that leak (e.g. mitral regurgitation).
“In 2005, my aortic and pulmonary valves were replaced at USC,” notes Adam Pick, the founder of HeartValveSurgery.com and author of The Patient’s Guide To Heart Valve Surgery. “Thanks to Dr. Vaughn Starnes and his incredible team, I was provided an extraordinary second chance at life.”
With its new “Cardiac Clinics” section of the website, HeartValveSurgery.com offers patients a trusted, end-to-end platform for learning about heart valve surgery. The platform includes a social network, a surgeon finder tool, a clinic directory, educational videos, an interactive blog and a book.
During 2011, HeartValveSurgery.com received 1.2 million visits while expanding its online library to 10,000 pages of free information.
“With HeartValveSurgery.com, Adam took a lemon and made lemonade,” notes Dr. Vaughn Starnes, the Chairman of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California. “Thanks to this website, patients know what to expect, experience less stress and better understand the entire surgical process – from diagnosis to recovery.”
