Okay...I"m new here and was referred her by a gentleman who posted the link on a WebMd forum. I am coming close to my fourth open heart surgery at the age of 21 due to my mechanical valve finally kicking the bucket. I am looking for the BEST surgeon around for my Aortic Valve Replacement. From the "statistics" the best heart hospital is in Cleveland, but is that where the best surgeon is? I was flown to the University of Alabama in Birmingham back when I was 7 for surgery...the best surgeon at the time performed the surgery. However he has now retired and I am in need of another surgeon. My mother and I will fly ANYWHERE in the US for the best treatment available. Being that this is my fourth time, my cardiologist is nervous and is pushing back the surgery. I am not too happy about his decision because I"m a "Let's get it done and over with" kind of person. I'm not scared, just anxious to get it over with. Who is the best surgeon for Aortic Valve Replacement?
No announcement yet.
Looking for the BEST Surgeon for the job...
