About Dr. Edward Soltesz,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Edward Soltesz and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1998. To date, I have performed approximately 3,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 2,200 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Cleveland Clinic. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my tailored, individualized approach to each patient’s heart condition. I often treat highly complex patients that have been denied surgery elsewhere. I practice at the largest and most comprehensive heart surgery program in the US and am part of a large, multidisciplinary team that can offer my patients the latest in heart care.

"Dr. Soltesz knew exactly what I needed done to my rheumatic heart and he accomplished it without complications. I am forever grateful. "

"I needed surgery right away and Dr. Soltesz worked me in within 2 days and operated 2 days later. My valve was so bad it snapped his scissors during surgery. He took the time to explain the procedure to me and my wife in pre-op. He came out of surgery to tell my wife all of the good news and answered all of her questions. His team was closely involved in all phases of recovery and I was very pleased with the recovery process at the Cleveland clinic. If you have a difficult heart issue Edward Soltesz is your guy. "

This was done January 5th, 2017 (only about 5 months ago). Dr. Soltesz explained everything in detail including the presurgical test results. He was personable and through as well as compassionate. I believe that he has saved my life and my recovery from a difficult major surgery is progressing well."
