Abington Health has one of the region's most Advanced Heart Valve Institutes.Porter Institute for Valvular Heart Disease

As the only heart valve specialty center in a Philadelphia area hospital, Abington Health’s Porter Institute for Valvular Heart Disease has a dedicated focus on the diagnosis and treatment of heart valve disorders.

Our experienced surgeons understand that life can be a struggle when a heart valve isn’t working right. They are highly experienced in restoring good heart function through the latest minimally invasive valve surgery methods.

Valve Symptoms and Conditions

Heart valve problems affect blood flow, causing fatigue, shortness of breath during exertion, chest pains, weakness and other symptoms.

We help patients with all types of valve disease, including leaky valves, narrow or stiff valves (aortic stenosis), floppy valves, congenital valve problems and valves damaged by heart attack.
