A heart murmur can be a serious problem or a subtle nuance in the way your heart pumps blood. These issues are initially identified by the way your heart sounds through a stethoscope. More detailed diagnostic tests can indicate whether a murmur is a problem.
At Sunrise Hospital, you’ll find complete care for heart murmurs and valve disease through our Heart Center. Our Heart Murmur Program treats patients with abnormalities in their blood flow using the latest technology for diagnostics and treatment. In some cases, heart murmurs are caused by underlying conditions and will go away when these other conditions are treated. Other types of heart murmur may be caused by defective valves, which need to be repaired through minimally invasive surgical procedures. Most often, these defects are identified and treated in adolescence, though adult treatment may be necessary, too.
