The Ross Procedure is a unique surgical alternative for young people with aortic valve disease.

It is particularly suited to those with otherwise normal hearts and all other organ systems in a healthy state.

Patients with active lifestyles participating in activities such as strenuous athletics stand to benefit from the perfectly normal physiology of the blood flow after this operation.

Those in whom anticoagulation (blood thinners) is undesirable or dangerous such as in women of childbearing years have additional benefit.
