About Dr. Basar Sareyyupoglu,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Basar Sareyyupoglu and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Ankara University in 1999. Mayo Clinic performs more than 4,500 cardiac surgeries each year. We are experts in treating pediatric, congenital and complex forms of heart valve disease using minimally invasive procedures including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and robotic mitral valve repair. In addition, Mayo Clinic specializes in treating cardiac conditions often related to heart valve disease including atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease and aortic aneurysms. I regularly perform surgery at Mayo Clinic in Florida. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my commitment to providing outstanding cardiac surgical care to all my patients. I strive to tailor my surgical approach to what is best for the patient, and which would provide the safest and best possible outcomes. I treat every patient with the same compassion and thoughtfulness that I would treat my own mother or father.
My surgical practice includes adult cardiac surgery: aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve repair or replacement; sternal sparing aortic and mitral valve operations; minimally invasive repair of structural heart defects; multiple reoperations; coronary artery revascularization and arterial grafting; heart transplantation, lung transplantation, and mechanical circulatory assist device implantation.
6 Patient Reviews for
"I highly recommend Dr. Sareyyupoglu and the Cardiac Team at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.
Dr. Sareyyupoglu far exceeded my expectations staring with all meetings leading up to surgery, surgery and post-op care. I can't thank him enough for sparing my aortic valve during the aortic root replacement. The nurses that took care of me during my five days in the hospital after surgery also exceeded my expectations."

"After consulting with Dr. Sareyyupoglu at Mayo in Jacksonville, there was no doubt he was the surgeon I wanted. Not only did I undergo aortic valve replacement but also triple bypass which I wasn't expecting. I'm living proof Dr. Sareyyupoglu and the staff at Mayo are the best in my opinion! I will always be grateful for their care!"

The care I received at Mayo Clinic post-surgery was exemplary. I could not have asked for better care from all the nurses and doctors involved. After arriving home, I received follow-up phone calls from my health care team to see how things were going. I always felt like they had my back.
While I didn't notice any issues with my heart prior to the surgery, I definitely realized after the surgery that I was able to take longer hikes and was less winded."
