By Adam Pick on September 5, 2012

I’m very happy to announce that Dr. Edwin C. McGee, Jr., a cardiac surgeon from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, has been named the ‘Featured Surgeon’ at HeartValveSurgery.com.

 

Dr. Edwin McGeeDr. Edwin McGee – Heart Surgeon

 

As you may have already seen, Dr. McGee has performed successful heart valve surgery on several patients in our community including – Michael McKeon and Maria Leibold.

 

Michael McKeon, a former aortic valve replacement patient, stated, “I don’t overstate the facts here – Dr. McGee and his supporting team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital saved my life.”

 

Interestingly, Dr. McGee recently performed an innovative procedure where one ventricular assist device (VAD) was implanted into each ventricle of the patient’s heart, known as biventricular configuration or BiVAD, until a donor heart became available.

Keep on tickin!
