Hello! My name is Dr. Alfredo Trento and I am a heart surgeon having graduated from University of Padua, Italy in 1975. To date, I have performed approximately Approximately 7,500 cardiac surgical procedures, of which 4,000 involved heart valve operations. I perform surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
"It's been two weeks since my MVR for severe regurgitation and I feel great. I was told by my cardiologist that my repair was 100% successful with no leak or murmur. I am very grateful for the great outcome I achieved as a result of Dr. Trento's skill and the great care I received at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles. I had my surgery Tuesday afternoon and I was discharged at 1pm on Friday."
"I'm nearing three months since my aortic valve was replaced. I am extremely happy with the results. I can't thank Dr. Trento and his team enough!"
"Dr. Alfredo Trento is world class surgeon. I am very pleased and consider myself very fortunate to have Dr. Trento as my surgeon. Not overly talkative, but takes the time to answer any questions. High quality staff at Cedars-Sinai. Everyone was excellent."
"Dr Trento had great bedside manner and did outstanding work in reconstruction of my aorta and spared my valve, in addition Cedars Sinai in LA was top notch hospital!!!"
"Dr. Trento at Cedars-Sinai did my surgery. He and his staff were outstanding."
"Dr. Alfredo Trento and the staff at Cedars-Sinai were wonderful. They took amazing care of me. I went home 4 days after the surgery and back to work after 4 weeks. I resumed full activity after 3 months. It was a fantastic experience. "
"For me, a triple by-pass accompanied the valve replacement. I've had only a minor bout with cellulitis since. I was out of the hospital within a week, and home after another week in a convalescent hospital. Dr. Alfredo Trento and his staff were attentive and supportive both before and after the operation. I've experience no further difficulties and very quickly resumed my normal activities (I'm retired). "
"Dr. Alfredo Trento is a highly qualified and competent surgeon. He is very pleasant and patient. He is also very attentive to all aspects of the procedure -- both before and after. His staff reflects his overall attitude. They are also very friendly and accessible."
"The relationship was brief - Dr. Alfredo Trento was all business and spent little time for "bedside manners". However, the fact that I'M FEELING GREAT REGARDING THE SURGERY, AND HERE I AM WRITING YOU, IS PROOF THAT HE'S DONE A GOOD JOB. BEDSIDES MANNERS WERE NOT TOO IMPORTANT TO ME. THE SURGEON'S SKILL AND EXPERIENCE IS PARAMOUNT."
"Dr. Alfredo Trento was very good, to the point, confident and matter of fact. I liked him very much, he was honest and I was extremely happy with the procedure and the result. It was the Da Vinci procedure - which is through the rib cage and does not break a bone."
"Dr. Alfredo Trento is head cardiac surgeon at Cedars Sinai, and I was very happy with my experience at Cedars. Dr. Trento is a man of few words, but certainly has years of experience and is highly qualified. His staff was extremely helpful and kept me informed throughout the process. "
"I was told I needed total heart transplant and would be lucky if heart valve replacement surgery would work to keep me alive. Dr. Alfredo Trento studied my heart pictures for 20 minutes. When he returned, he told me he could repair part of the valve and replace less of it. I am doing fine! Dr. Trento is very professional. People come to him from all over world. Plus, many from VA hospitals -- a surgeon for all, not just the rich. Dr. Trento also works on children's hearts -- said to have magical fingers as they are smaller. Knew I was in good hands; am feeling better now than a year ago before my heart failure. After 8 months am surfing again!! I recommend Dr. Alfredo Trento highly."
"Dr. Alfredo Trento was amazing. He is an expert in his field. Dr. Trento believes in getting his patients up and around as soon as possible. We think he is great. His assistant was wonderful too."
