Hello! My name is Dr. Hyde Russell and I am a heart surgeon having graduated from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in 1999. To date, I have performed approximately 800 cardiac surgeries, of which 500 involved heart valve procedures. I perform surgery at hospitals including Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
"From my first meeting with Dr. Hyde Russell, he put me at ease. He takes all the time you need and answers all questions you have. He offered me to reach out at a later time -- even if I forgot something. He is very passionate about his work and a genuine, caring doctor. He was sure to visit me in the hospital and followed up to see how I was doing. Follow-up visits were very timely and overall, I would not hesitate to have him operate on me again. This is one talented surgeon who I strongly recommend for any Cardiac patient needing valve surgery."
"Dr. Hyde Russell really inspires trust. My son just had the surgery, and he kept the family updated during the 7-8 hour procedure. He immediately spoke with us after the surgery and regularly visits my son's room at least 3 times a day. He fixed my son's bicuspid valve and he has made it so Matt will not have any animal or synthetic parts in his body. He fixed his heart. Matt's entire family is sooo incredibly thankful to Dr. Russell and the Ross procedure has done for our 21 year old. Dr. Russell is very passionate about his work, talented, and devoted to his patients. He is someone that is thorough and really inspires trust. I highly recommend him and everyone on his team. You are definitely in good hands with Dr. Russell."
"My experience with Dr. Russell was, in a word, awesome. I had an emergency redo-sternotomy 11/12/2011, and Dr. Russell expertly & clearly explained what happened, answering all of my questions. I am very happy with the result of my surgery. I felt at ease with Dr. Russell from the pre-surgery meeting. He is very personable & discusses options knowledgeably."
"Dr. Hyde Russell was my surgeon when I had my triscupid valve replaced in 2009 at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH) in Chicago. I am an adult congenital heart patient. That was my 3rd heart surgery; the first was at age 4 in 1951 at Children’s Memorial Hospital, Chicago.
Dr Russell is an excellent surgeon and a very good man. His post surgery visits to my hospital room were unlike any I have had as a hospital patient before or since. He came every day, sometimes twice a day, always with a unhurried, pleasant manner. The nurses also loved him because he responded so quickly to calls."
My cardiac specialties include:
- Aortic valve disease and the Ross operation
- Pulmonary and tricuspid valve disease
- Adult Congenital Heart Disease
Relative to heart valve surgery, I have the following clinical interests:
- Pulmonary valve, Ross Operation
- Adult Congenital Heart Disease
- Heart Failure
"I believe my greatest strength as a heart surgeon is my congenital background. I understand the varied anatomy and complex procedures involved in the repair of congenital heart defects allows me to thoughtfully and effectively treat adults with repaired congenital defects. It has also facilitated operations in my standard adult practice with valve sparing aortic root replacement, valve repair and valve replacement. The Ross operation in particular is an elegant solution for younger patients with aortic valve disease which requires an intimate understanding of the LV outflow tract and aorta, the RV outflow tract and pulmonary artery, and the ventricular septum. My background has served me well with this operation and the many other complex clinical situations I encounter routinely."
