Dr. Steven F. Bolling's expertise in mitral valve repair continues to result in a large volume of referrals for mitral valve reconstruction. His innovative approach to mitral valve repair in patients with end-stage left ventricular failure and outstanding ability to repair even the most challenging mitral valve abnormalities have received wide spread international acclaim. He continues to run an NIH-funded basic science laboratory.
