The Heart Hospital Baylor Denton (THHBD) features a highly experienced team of heart valve specialists on the medical staff and other specially trained clinicians to manage a wide range of heart valve disorders requiring repair or replacement.

THHBD's valve program is patient-focused and combines the knowledge, expertise and skill of a team of cardiovascular experts with advanced technology to manage heart valve disorders such as stenosis​ (a hardening of the valve), leaking valves and other valve conditions.

Innovative Valve Care Close to Home​

THHBD is the only hospital in Denton to offer minimally invasive solutions for conditions affecting heart valves in addition to being the first hospital in Denton to perform minimally invasive aortic valve replacement and mitral valve repair and replacement.

As a specialized heart facility, THHBD has a staff that is dedicated and trained solely to care for heart patients, and is focused on offering forward-thinking procedures for heart valve conditions, including:

  • Aortic valve mini-sternotomy – a minimally invasive procedure to replace the aortic valve through a small incision.
  • Mitral and tricuspid valve port procedures – a minimally invasive surgical approach through the right side of the chest to repair the mitral or tricuspid valve, avoiding major surgery through the breast bone.
  • Valve surgery – cardiac surgeons on the medical staff are skilled in a number of other surgical techniques to effectively address many valve conditions.

THHBD works with each patient to determine the exact nature of their heart valve condition and recommend the treatment option that may offer the best chance for a quality outcome and fast recovery.
