if you qualify, yes. You need to find a center where they do the procedure that you're satisfied with and be evaluated to see if you're a good candidate. If you qualify they will discuss with you where the valves will be placed and how many. Qualification doesn't depend on where you are in the progression of the disease; it depends on whether you're a good candidate.
