Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital has a team of surgeons who offer complex mitral repair and tricuspid repair surgery
This can involve replacement of heart strings or chordae as well as leaflet transpositions and resections. This team also has a growing practice in atrial fibrillation surgery. They offer radio frequency and other modality ablation to convert atrial dysrhythmias back into the regular rhythm.
LHCH has six dedicated theatres for cardiac surgery. Following surgery the patients are then transferred into one of the largest Critical Care Units in Europe to receive first class post-operative care.
We have a keen interest in training the next generation of heart surgeons and regularly run wet-lab training for local and national trainees to hone their surgical skills. Our trainees not only have a high pass rate at the Trust Exit Exam but are often the top scoring candidates.
Some patients may require treatment from our Dental Service prior to their valve surgery.
