I have a ten year old aortic bovine tissue valve that requires replacing. I am a white male less than 60 years old and want to talk to a Mayo Clinic Professional to determine my valve replacement options.
Is an aortic valve replacement procedure only performed in Rochester?
Thank you for now.

Aortic valve re-replacement can be performed at Mayo Clinic Rochester, Florida, or Arizona. If you have had congenital heart disease, then we would want to get you to an adult congenital specialist.
