Rocky Mountain Valve Symposium returns to Missoula

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A medical symposium this week brings together cardiac experts from all over the world to Missoula. The three-day-long Rocky Mountain Valve Symposium is hosted by the International Heart Institute of Montana at St Patrick Hospital. 

Experts will hold lectures, panel discussions, case studies, and debates about heart valve disease and treatment. The highlighted topic of this year's event is the exponential growth in minimally invasive techniques used to treat heart disease. 

Heart specialists say that we are at the cusp of an exciting new age in cardiac treatment. 

"2015-2016 is very equivalent to the 1960s with heart valve surgery open-wise," said Dr. Joe Knapp. "We're at the beginning of a revolutionary time in repairing and replacing heart valves, this is the start of a revolution in healthcare." 

The 26th annual Rocky Mountain Valve Symposium runs through Saturday. Click here for more information on the event.
