If you are diagnosed with disease of the heart including valvular disease, coronary artery disease or aortic disease, it’s important to make sure the diagnosis is correct. Studies have shown that, in some cases, a second opinion results in major changes to diagnosis and treatment. Having a second physician agree with your first doctor or find something that was overlooked or misinterpreted the first time can provide peace of mind when faced with a number of treatment options.

Because cardiovascular issues are diverse and complex, it takes an expert to provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment options. The team at UF Health Cardiothoracic Surgery are leaders in the region when it comes to diseases of the heart. Our heart team approach lends to a thorough evaluation, more options and ultimately better outcomes.
