We have exciting news for you...

Dr. Simon Swift from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine has been working closely with Dr. Masami Uechi and the Jasmine clinic in efforts to bring his Mitral Valve Repair Surgical technique to the US. We are excited to announce that an agreement has officially been reached with an exchange program between UF and Jasmine set to begin in Spring of 2019. An official press release by UF is soon to come.
