400+ Mitral Surgeries Annually

Dr. Adams and his team perform over 400 mitral valve repair procedures annually, and is the highest volume valve surgeon in NY State, according to the two most recent NYS DOH public outcomes reports. Our recent paper in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology shows doctors with more experience provide patients better outcomes. 

Quality Care

Setting National Safety Benchmarks

Our current mitral valve repair rates of > 99% with < 0.5% mortality are national benchmarks. Long-term freedom from regurgitation and reoperations after valve repair are among the highest ever reported by the leading mitral centers in the world. Dr. Adams has received the highest two-star safety rating from the NYS DOH for cardiac surgery for the past several years.
