Meet Paul Robison, MD, MMM, CPE, FACS, FACC, FACCP

Blood is pumped through your heart in only one direction. Heart valves play a key role in this one-way blood flow, opening and closing with each heartbeat. When damage to a heart valve is severe, it may be necessary to replace that valve. Cardiothoracic and Vascular surgeon Dr. Paul Robison of Cardiovascular Consultants shares about a revolutionary new sutureless aortic heart valve called Perceval.
