Mayo Clinic's approach

Your Mayo Clinic care team

At Mayo Clinic, a team of cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and other care providers work together to provide coordinated, comprehensive care for people who need tricuspid valve repair or tricuspid valve replacement.

Collaborative care

Care providers at Mayo Clinic take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the treatment you need. If you have other heart conditions besides tricuspid valve disease that require surgery, surgeons may do the procedures at the same time.

Advanced technology and treatment

People who come to Mayo Clinic for tricuspid valve repair or tricuspid valve replacement have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities. Mayo Clinic care providers routinely use cardiac MRI and other imaging techniques to evaluate tricuspid valve disease and help determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

Mayo Clinic cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons offer the latest tricuspid valve disease treatment options, including minimally invasive heart surgery and robot-assisted heart surgery. Minimally invasive heart surgery involves smaller incisions and may result in a quicker recovery.
