"I was referred to Dr. Ramzy by my cardiologist in Arizona when I needed surgery on my aortic valve. At first, I was considered for a minimally invasive procedure with a catheter. But when I wasn’t a fit for that program, I was happy that another minimally invasive procedure did turn out to be the right one for me.
I met and consulted with Dr. Ramzy online. After seeing my records, Dr. Ramzy determined that I was a good candidate for a mini thoracotomy, which is a small three-inch incision in between my ribs. My body responded well, and I was out of the ICU in just one day. I was then transferred to a regular room where I received excellent care from Dr. Ramzy’s highly competent and helpful nursing staff.
I was discharged after just five days and remained in LA for 2-3 more days so that I could return for a post-operative follow up before driving back to Arizona. With the small incision, I was able to limit my stay in LA to just one week. My surgery was in late October and so, six weeks after my surgery, I am still recovering. But I have been gradually regaining my physical functions. I am a pastor and preached my first sermon on November 8. As of early December, I have started lifting weights again. My surgery was successful, and I have been able to control what few issues I have had with pain with Tylenol. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Ramzy to anyone in need of an aortic valve procedure"
