Depends: I doubt that, but it will depend on the actual problem you are having with those. A consult with a heart surgeon is what you need.
Dr. Steven Guyton
Thoracic Surgery 46 years experience
Yes: The more valves that are involved the higher the risk. Or if there is coronary artery disease in addition to valve disease operative risk is increased.
Dr. Joshua Buckler
Cardiology 19 years experience
Yes: But the surgical risk is higher.
