Do you know about valve disease?

Last updated 5 years ago

You may not know it, but you depend on four tiny valves in your heart. As long as they open and close the way they were designed to with each and every heartbeat, blood flows properly, delivering oxygen throughout the body. But if something goes wrong with your heart valves, you could be in danger.

At the Memorial Heart Center Valve Clinic,  we have an experienced medical staff that is trained in both the detection and treatment of valve conditions. Our cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons work as a team to get you the care you need. It’s that collaboration, as well as our dedicated Valve Clinic staff, that make the Memorial Heart Center Valve Clinic unique.

Here are some signs of heart valve disease:


  • Shortness of breath or breathing too hard
  • Chest pain and pressure or a feeling of squeezing or heaviness
  • Swelling of the legs
  • Fainting, dizziness, lightheadedness
  • Heart murmur (turbulent flow of blood) heard by a physician
