Valvular heart disease happens when your heart's valves do not work correctly. This causes your heart muscle to work harder so it can circulate the right amount of blood throughout your body. Valve disease can eventually lead to heart failure or HF.

The Valvular Heart Disease Program at U of U Health provides cutting edge treatment from multi-specialty, high certified providers. Our goal is to provide you with the best care available.

Hear From Our Patients

Joe Yanez was a high school junior in 1966 when he suffered an appendicitis attack. His attack was so serious he needed a blood transfusion, and thirty years later that transfusion caused him to develop hepatitis C.

The disease damaged his liver so extensively that his only hope was a liver transplant. To complicate matters even more, Yanez developed heart valve disease and needed a new valve in addition to a liver. His doctors in Colorado were unable to perform such a high-risk surgery, so Yanez found his way to University of Utah Health.
