Heart Murmurs

While heart murmurs are typically harmless, they may be a sign of an underlying heart problem. If you or a loved one has a suspected heart murmur, cardiologists at the Jefferson Heart Institute can provide a personalized consultation that may include diagnostic tests. If follow-up treatment for your heart murmur is needed, you will receive the most sophisticated treatment options available in the Delaware Valley, from medications like anticoagulants (to prevent blood clots) to surgery like fixing or replacing a valve.
