After giving away our new HeartValveSurgery.com hats, I was asked by Dr. Allan Stewart if it was possible to make a “HVS scrub cap” for the doctors in our community. I thought it was a great idea. So, I contacted Griselda – my local embroidery guru – to see if she could make an HVS scrub cap.

Griselda did not let me down! Within a few days, Griselda made three different designs that all looked fantastic. I then asked a few heart valve experts if they might want to try our new scrub caps.
As you can see below, several leading heart valve surgeons are now actually wearing HVS scrub caps in their hospitals.
Here’s Dr. Allan Stewart, the Medical Director, Cardiovascular Surgery, at HCA Health, East Florida Division. So you know, Dr. Stewart has successfully treated many heart valve patients in our community including Donna Herzek, Lilliam Filer and John Kirby.

That’s Dr. Kevin Accola, a top heart valve surgeon at AdventHealth in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Accola and his amazing team have successfully treated many patients in our community including Francine Kelly, John Toukatly and Jane Ingrey.

Yep! That’s Dr. Marc Gerdisch, the Chief of Cardiac Surgery at Franciscan Health in Indianapolis, Indiana. With over 100 patient testimonials at HVS, Dr. Gerdisch has helped many patients in our community including Lynette Farless, Adam Nichols and Ronald Hamilton.

And… That is Dr. Eric Roselli, the Chief of Adult Cardiac Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Roselli is another, long-time supporter of the HeartValveSurgery.com community, who has successfully treated Tim Miller, Evelyn King, Scot Bascue and many others.
