My wife was recently admitted for a minimally invasive mitral valve repair . She has had this since she was born. Surgery to repair this was not recommended for children, so she had to wait until she was an adult to get the surgery performed. We are not worried, it is an outpatient procedure. My wife is ready to get it over with. She has been very strong through it all. I am very proud of her and can’t wait to put this behind us.
