“It’s unfortunate that many patients with aortic valve disease and aortic aneurysms are not educated about the symptoms and the risks associated with these harmful disorders,” stated Adam Pick, founder of HeartValveSurgery.com. “For this reason, we are very excited to connect Dr. Allan Stewart with our community during this live webinar.”
Allan Stewart, MD is the Director of Aortic Surgery and Co-Director of the Valve Center in the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital, which currently ranks #13 for Cardiology & Heart Surgery programs, according to the U.S. News and World Report.
Dr. Stewart has performed successful valvular therapy on over 100 patients from the HeartValveSurgery.com community. Many of those patients experienced symptoms – including shortness of breath – as a result of congenital or degenerative disorders including aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation, bicuspid aortic valves and aortic aneurysms.
“This webinar provides a unique opportunity to discuss important details about aortic valve disease and aortic aneurysms,” stated Dr. Stewart of Mount Sinai. “I look forward to sharing my clinical experiences, my research and my patient success stories with the community at HeartValveSurgery.com.”
