About Dr. Danny Ramzy,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Danny Ramzy and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from McMaster University in 2000. To date, I have performed approximately 3,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 1,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my experience in all types of cardiac surgery. I believe that minimally invasive and robotic procedures make it possible for patients to have heart surgery with smaller incisions in the side of the chest. This means that patients have less discomfort and shorter recovery times.
I can use minimally invasive surgeries for heart valves, bypasses, and procedures that help the heart beat normally. When minimally invasive surgeries are not possible, I can use traditional heart surgery approaches. Given my broad range of surgical skills, I enjoy helping patients that need complex surgeries which other hospitals may reject.
For my patients, I do my best to make them feel like family. I believe in treating the patient – not just the disease. In addition to my medical degree, I also earned a PhD which helps me serve as a leading researcher and educator of other doctors. My hope is that the entire medical community can benefit from the advances in surgery that our team is developing.
3 Patient Reviews for
"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"
