“Who Was Robin Williams’ Heart Surgeon?” Asks Tammy
I’m not sure if you have followed the latest news coverage of Robin Williams’s heart valve surgery…
But, earlier today it was confirmed that Robin Williams had double heart valve surgery on March 13, 2009 at The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. While initial reports suggested that Robin Williams would only need aortic valve replacement surgery, the Oscar-winning actor and comedian also had his mitral valve repaired.

The answer… Doctor A. Marc Gillinov of The Cleveland Clinic was Robin Williams heart surgeon.
After the surgery, Doctor Gillinov stated, “Williams heart is strong and he will have normal heart function in the coming weeks with no limitations on what he’ll be able to do.”
