National Heart Centre Singapore (NHC) performs about 120 isolated valve surgeries a year of which two thirds are mitral valve repairs, using the conventional and minimally invasive procedure. Its mortality rate was only 1.92 percent, well below the international STS benchmark of 6 percent for mitral valve surgeries. NHC is currently the only centre in Singapore that performs robot-assisted mitral valve repairs.
