You or a loved one may have been told that you have a heart murmur or a leaky valve. Treating heart valve problems has changed dramatically over the years and may no longer mean that your chest has to be cracked. Here to tell us more about minimally invasive treatment is Dr. Hemal Gada, interventional cardiologist and medical director of the structural heart program at UPMC Pinnacle.
You won't believe how heart surgery has changed and advanced. Dr. Gada and his staff can actually repair and replace a heart valve using a small incision and do it while the heart is beating. And most heart surgeries are performed and the patient goes home......the next day.
A truly fascinating interview and how this life changing medicine.....world class care is being offered....here in the place we call home.....at UPMC-Pinnacle.
Oh....and I just had to ask Dr. Gada. THIS IS US fans. Why did Jack have to die and could you have saved him.
