About Dr. Anelechi Anyanwu,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Anelechi Anyanwu and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Nigeria in 1990. To date, I have performed approximately 2,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 1,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is complex mitral valve surgery including valve re-repairs.
These procedures are often long -- up to 12 hours -- and difficult. For that reason, I am very grateful for the training I received from Sir Magdi Yacoub in the United Kingdom and Dr. David Adams in the United States.
Ultimately, it is very rewarding to help patients needing a first, second, or third, procedure during their lifetimes. There is nothing better than getting a hug from a patient in the hallway after their operation.
2 Patient Reviews for
"I was playing my guitar the day I was discharged. Dr. Anyanwu inspired my complete confidence."
-- Bob DeVoz, Guitarist, heart valve surgery patient
"I was playing my guitar the day I was released and performed in concert a few weeks later. Dr. Anelchi Anyanwu, Dr. David Adams, Dr. Chan and all the team were extraordinary, as was the entire professional staff of Dr. Anyanwu's physician assistants, nurses and physical therapists. I was a repeat open heart surgery, and I can say from experience, that Mount Sinai is light years beyond other facilities. Dr. Anyanwu and Dr. Adams inspired and merited my complete confidence. My wife and I thank everyone with--yes--both our hearts."
