Heart Valve Center

About Our Heart Valve Center

At Jersey Shore University Medical Center, we have brought together our cardiac surgeons with the leading cardiologists from throughout the region to develop the Heart Valve Center. Here, we offer the most complete, most coordinated care for patients with valvular heart disease.

The Center offers a full range of surgical approaches including:

  • Minimally invasive heart valve repair
  • Treatment of complex valve lesions
  • Combined valve, coronary, and atrial fibrillation surgery
  • Valve surgery for advanced heart failure patients
  • Treatment of valve disease with both ventricular dysfunction and severe pulmonary hypertension
  • Valve replacement

With specialized management in all phases of care, our team coordinates follow-up care through the referring cardiologist, working with your physician to coordinate your evaluations, medical management, and rehabilitation.

When you or a loved one face valve disease, care requires more than excellent cardiologists and cardiac surgeons, particularly in the perioperative setting. In the operating room, our patients are cared for by an experienced team of cardiac anesthesia and perfusion specialists. Our cardiac ICU is staffed on-site by intensive care specialist physicians for management of patients with complex conditions or special requirements.

Following discharge, we work with your physicians on collaborative postoperative care, rehabilitation, and outcomes tracking.

Valve Repair
Our team focuses on evaluating each patients unique conditions to evaluate valve repair options. From surgical reconstruction, bioprosthetic or mechanical replacement, or new hybrid therapies with vascular stenting, our physicians explore minimally invasive approaches that are often carried out in our hybrid operating room.

Returning Patients to a Healthier Lifestyle
As a part of Meridian Cardiovascular Network, The Heart Valve Center provides a full range of recovery services to enhance rehabilitation and get you back to life at home, such as:

  • Comprehensive Inpatient and Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Programs - including medically supervised exercise, nutrition counseling, and educational programs to strengthen the heart and maximize a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Support Groups - helping patients recover from cardiac conditions by learning how to cope and gaining comfort from others with shared experiences, in respected groups like Mended Hearts.
  • Community Outreach Programs - offering community services like heart risk assessment screenings, heart health workshops, and a variety of educational programs on nutrition, fitness, stress management, and smoking cessation, all of which work toward preventing and reducing heart disease.
