Dr. Burns

"I traveled from Washington State to Cleveland Clinic (CC) for heart surgery as it is a top heart surgery center both per the Society of Thoracic Surgeons database and US News heart surgery center rankings. Indications at present are my surgery was a total success. Dr. Burns, as my Surgeon, was the key player, but the support he got from the CC surgical center was vital as well.

Prior to surgery a series of tests and medical appointments took place over 2 days, including a meeting with Dr. Burns, to review my condition and his plan for surgery (his specific knowledge of my condition and surgical plan was reassuring). Dr. Burns and a Cleveland Clinic surgical team performed my open heart surgery on 18 March 2021. Dr. Burns visited me several times after surgery, always upbeat and informative. The repaired valve showed no leakage after surgery and I was discharge from the hospital 5 days after surgery.

I may not be typical but, except when I coughed, I had little pain after surgery (I suspect surgical skill of Dr. Burns and his team had something to do with that). Since discharge I’ve been typically walking (slowly & with breaks at first) 45 min or more a day, as recommended. I will start stage 2 cardio rehab in 2 weeks. I feel like I could not have been in better hands."

"I was recently treated for a bicuspid aortic valve replacement and double bypass at the Cleveland Clinic. Upon first meeting Dr. Daniel Burns it was clear that he is a caring accomplished surgeon that has the respect of his entire team. He not only took the time to evaluate my case and get to know my individual goals for the future, but did so in a compassionate, comprehensive manner.

Although the surgery was extensive, the outcome was exceptional and a full recovery is in process. It was a stellar experience at the Cleveland Clinic due to Dr. Burns and his team. I highly recommend Dr. Daniel Burns!"
