I believe my greatest strength is that I am specialized in congenital valve disease and minimal scar surgery in children.
"All I can say is Dr. Khanh Nguyen is a wonderful doctor who repaired the heart of my 3-year old child. My son was just discharge from the hospital one day after the surgery which is amazing.My son was walking the next day after the surgery by himself. I really appreciate Doctor Khanh Nguyen and his team at Mount Sinai is amazing for all their hard work."

"Dr. Nguyen is wonderful. He repaired my 6-year-old's son along with surgeon Dr. Paul Stelzer who has done roughly 500 valve replacements. We are extremely grateful to this team of doctors. Our son's surgery was roughly 5 hours & the surgeon's treated him with the utmost care and his recovery was amazing. He was discharged from the hospital just 2 days after his surgery -- just incredible how well he did, and we couldn't be happier with these truly dedicated doctors and the staff for all that they did for our son.
