Hello! My name is Dr. Jeffrey Swanson and I am a heart surgeon having graduated from University of Montpellier, France in 1977. To date, I have performed approximately 7,000 cardiac surgical procedures, of which 3,000 involved heart valve operations. I perform surgery at Providence St Vincent Hospital.
"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."
"Dr. Jeffrey Swanson is a wonderful, top notch surgeon. His bedside manner is awesome. The results have been wonderful and his office is also very responsive to any questions. He has several PAs and a RN that also are available for questions and help if Dr. Swanson is in surgery. His receptionist is very professional and always gets the message to the correct person to return calls to you if they are out of the office."
"I had 6 months to research different kinds of valve replacement approaches. My first visit with Dr. Swanson was not what I expected. However, I went full circle and decided to go with his suggested surgery. I was 39 at the time of my surgery and I wanted to avoid the full sternotomy. Dr. Jeffrey Swanson performed it and I have to say that this was the way to go. I am extremely happy with his bedside manner and the result of my surgery. My surgery was done in 2.5 hours and was walking the next day. All what he told me about the post-op process was true. I was having dinner with friends 8 days after the surgery. Hitting balls and playing my first nine holes 8-9 weeks after the surgery. However, keep in mind I was 39. He just performed the same surgery in my wife's aunt and it's been also great. She's 70 and she was out of the hospital in less than a week. If you live close to Portland, Dr. Swanson is the guy."
"Portland, Oregon's top Cardiovascular surgeon and I have to agree. "

"Dr. Jeffrey Swanson always had time to explain things -- as if I was his only patient. Its been only 9 days since surgery and recovering great."

Surgery also included replacement of ascending aorta as well as new valve and was over in 3 1/2 hours. Home on the 5th day following surgery and recovering well."
