Patient Review of Dr. Alfredo Trento

"Dr. Trento had great bedside manner and did outstanding work reconstructing my aorta while sparing my valve. Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles is a top notch hospital."

-- Jerry Andis, Aortic Valve, Valve Repair, David Procedure, 03/22/2012

"One of the pioneers in the intercostal approach for minimally invasive robotic mitral valve repair, Dr. Trento is exceptionally skilled and my results appear to be perfect (though I'm still healing as I write this review. Dr. Trento is matter-of-fact and businesslike; if you need a warm, fuzzy bedside manner there may be others who can offer this. If you want no-nonsense top surgical results, Trento is among the top surgeons anywhere.

I will say that the intercostal approach (3" incision below the right breast) can be a bit rough pain-wise for up to a month after surgery but offers an overall faster recovery than the sternum approach. This appealed to me as I'm a very active person and wanted to get back to a high activity level as quickly as possible."
