8 Patient Reviews for Dr. Malaisrie

"Nine weeks after surgery, I've come so far. I'm already walking 2 miles and back to my daily life. God, bless my surgeon Dr. S. Chris Malaisrie and the Northwestern team!"

-- Janis Kielbasa, heart valve surgery patient

"An absolutely wonderful human being. Very intelligent, he explained my whole procedure so that both myself and my husband understood how it would be done. My husband was kept completely informed as to the progress of the surgery from start to finish.

Dr. Malaisrie and his complete team were more than accommodating! Result was unbelievable, after 4 weeks I'm back to nearly 100%. By the way, this was also my second open heart surgery. Dr Malaisrie and his team are very highly recommended!!"
