Ross Procedure

This specialized aortic heart valve surgery replaces the patient's diseased aortic heart valve with his or her own pulmonary valve. The pulmonary valve is then replaced with a homograft (human tissue) pulmonary valve.

Although a Ross procedure is more complicated than a conventional valve replacement, it has long-term benefits. It fosters growth in the pulmonary artery, which makes this a procedure of choice in younger patients.

Our valve surgery specialists at the Porter Institute for Valvular Heart Disease are experienced in performing Ross procedures.
