Heart Valve Consultation | Second Opinion on Heart Valve Surgery

With increasing age, various diseases of the heart valves can occur that are usually recognizable by symptoms such as fatigue and shortness of breath – for example, narrowing of the aortic valve (aortic stenosis) or leakage of the mitral valve (mitral regurgitation). In this case, echocardiography should always be used to clarify the exact mechanism in order to be able to make a meaningful decision about further steps. This is because diseases of the heart valves often do not need to be treated immediately and can initially be monitored for years with regard to possible changes.

As the long-standing head of a special consultation unit for valve diseases at the Kerckhoff Clinic in Bad Nauheim, Prof. Fischer-Rasokat brings a wealth of experience to his private practice that he uses to provide a second opinion on whether an operation is really necessary in your case. In a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, you can ask your questions and benefit from the many years of experience of a renowned heart valve specialist. In addition, we will provide you with information on new, gentle treatment methods (TAVI and MitraClip) so that you can make an informed decision regarding minimally invasive procedures (MitraClip, TricuClip) performed by Prof. Fischer-Rasokat at our partner clinic (Bethanien Hospital, Frankfurt am Main).
