Robotic Mitral Valve Repair: Jim Watkins’ Story

Jim Watkins closely monitored his health after learning that he had a heart murmur and a leaky heart valve. After exploring his options at several hospitals, he chose to come to Johns Hopkins for a robotic mitral valve repair with Kaushik Mandal, M.D., a cardiac surgeon. He tells his story about the procedure, recovery and experience with The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

About the Johns Hopkins Robotic Cardiac Surgery Program

Minimally invasive robotic surgery may be used to treat many cardiac conditions with increased precision and safety. Our advanced robotic system allows us to perform complex operations through incisions that are much smaller than those used with traditional surgical approaches. Mandal and his team are dedicated to offering robotic cardiac to patients that are approved candidates for these procedures.
