Mayo Clinic cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and other researchers use and study innovative surgical techniques for heart valve repair and heart valve replacement, such as minimally invasive heart surgery and catheter procedures. Doctors and surgeons also use innovative methods, such as 3D printing of the heart and valves, to evaluate the heart and prepare to conduct heart valve surgery.

Researchers study new treatments and surgical techniques for people who have heart valve disease. Learn more about research in the Cardiovascular Research Center.
