Hello! My name is Dr. Jeffrey Swanson and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Montpellier, France in 1977. To date, I have performed approximately 7,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 3,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Providence St Vincent Hospital. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is experience-based, intelligent, individualized judgement appropriately tailored to each patient prior to, during, and after their surgical intervention.
"Dr. Swanson is fantastic. He came to visit me every night after my heart valve surgery. "
-- Theresa LoMonaco, heart valve surgery patient
"Dr. Jeffrey Swanson explained the surgery in detail and put me at ease -- since I was very anxious. He visited me daily while in the hospital. The follow- up visits were excellent. Dr. Swanson and his staff were very willing to answer questions."
