"I can't thank Dr. Gillinov and the Cleveland Clinic enough. I'm doing great after my heart valve surgery."

-- Robin Williams, heart valve surgery patient

"I feel blessed to have been in the care of Dr. Gillinov and his team from the Cleveland Clinic. I was concerned when my hometown cardiologist recommended I not go out of state for a mitral valve repair. I decided to go against his surgeon recommendation because I wanted to go to the Cleveland Clinic which is where my brother had a successful aortic valve replacement done seven years ago. The Surgeon Finder from the HeartValve Surgery.com indicated that Dr. Gilinov was exceptionally skilled at mitral valve repair, so I added my name to his waiting list.

We did not meet him until the day before the surgery, but my family and I were impressed with his humility, dry wit, and the thoroughness of his explanations. When he told me I had a 96% probability of valve repair, I had complete faith that he was the man for the job.

The operation could not have gone more smoothly, and I am glad he stopped by CCU afterwards so I could personally thank him. Every member of the Cleveland Clinic team was first rate, truly living up to the Clinic's world class reputation.

I had to travel over two thousand miles round trip for this operation, and it was truly worth the trip! Thanks Adam for the work you do in bringing patients and surgeons together for successful outcomes in highly complex surgeries. This website was my number one resource for a successful medical experience."
