In brief: 5000? No way

The average reimbursement for valve repair in the us is probably between 1200 and 2000 per case depending on location and type of insurance.
You then take that money and pay taxes, office staff, office costs and in the end your not left with much. Really!

In brief: Lots of options

There are many places in the world with top notch heart surgery programs.
Pretty much anywhere in the developed world. In fact many countries in europe have a higher repair rate than the us. Also the rate of repair vs replacement can vary within the us itself.
