Hello! My name is Dr. Eric Roselli and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine - Chicago, Illinois in 1997. To date, I have performed approximately 3,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 1,500 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Cleveland Clinic. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my broad training and experience in both complex open and catheter based therapies allows me to provide my patients the most comprehensive approach to their heart disease and their entire cardiovascular system.
And, I truly care about my patients and their families.
"My husband and I were very, very impressed with Dr. Roselli. He is very down to earth with a great bedside manner. "
-- Denise Kirchner, heart valve surgery patient
"I'm a 55 year old female who had a congenital VSD Repair at age 5. I also had a congenital bicuspid aortic valve which became symptomatic resulting in severe aortic stenosis requiring an aortic valve replacement.
Our surgeon of choice was Dr. Eric Roselli. He was our third surgical opinion and as the saying goes, the third time is a charm! Dr. Roselli is a gentleman and a scholar! He has an excellent skill set as a cardiac surgeon ("great plumber") and just as importantly, he has great interpersonal skills. He is patient, kind and bright with a great sense of humor, willing to answer all of the questions my husband and I had in a graceful manner.
After the surgery, he again spoke to my husband and family to inform them of my condition and how the surgery went. The same evening of my surgery, the breathing tube was removed. The next morning, I was out of bed in a chair and later discharged to the telemetry unit in a spacious private room where my husband could stay with me overnight in a pullout futon bed!
My pain, which was minimal, was controlled with a Fentanyl PCA pump and then with oral pills. I was discharged exactly one week from my date of surgery. I had a great experience throughout!
Again, once home, I rarely had to take pain meds. Full 9 inch sternotomy scar healed with self absorbing hidden sutures that did NOT have to be removed. Cardiac hotline available 24/7 with RNs and doctors to answer and treat any concerns that may arise once you are discharged home.
Dr. Roselli and his experienced medical and nursing team thoroughly impressed me! (I am a nursing professional myself!) I highly recommend Dr. Eric Roselli and The Cleveland Clinic without reservation! Put yourself in the best place and in the best hands! #1 in cardiac care in the nation since 1995! The outcomes are published!"
