Over 2000 cardiac surgeons have attended reconstructive valve repair workshops provided by the Mitral Foundation. Clinical sessions moderated by Drs. Ani Anyanwu (surgeon) and Randolph Martin (cardiologist) provide a professional learning platform for attendees. International visiting surgeons include Marc Gillinov (Cleveland Clinic), Hugo Vanermen (Hirslanden Hospital) and Tirone David (Toronto General Hospital).
Physicians from over 50 countries have visited the Mitral Foundation Center. During the workshops, Dr. Adams performs live surgeries (video streamed to the Mitral Foundation Center). The live analysis of very complex cases offers a unique opportunity for physicians to witness advanced repair techniques.
