Dr. Edwin McGeeDr. Edwin McGee – Heart Surgeon

As you may have already seen, Dr. McGee has performed successful heart valve surgery on several patients in our community including – Michael McKeon and Maria Leibold.

Michael McKeon, a former aortic valve replacement patient, stated, “I don’t overstate the facts here – Dr. McGee and his supporting team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital saved my life.”

In this video, Dr. McGee addresses the complex issues of heart failure and heart valve treatment.

Interestingly, Dr. McGee recently performed an innovative procedure where one ventricular assist device (VAD) was implanted into each ventricle of the patient’s heart, known as biventricular configuration or BiVAD, until a donor heart became available.

Keep on tickin!
