1 Patient Review for Dr. Bakaeen

"Dr Bakaeen was and is a gifted thoracic surgeon. He took a case that was turned away by other surgeons who felt that this was too difficult.

Words cannot describe what he has done for me and my whole family. He saw me daily and sometimes twice. His staff was extrodinary.

The surgery was difficult. Ten hours and 4 hours with the heart. He and, I am quoting from his report , Redo sternotomy,right axillary cannulation, aortic valve replacement with 21 mm Trifecta valve , mitral valve replacement with 29 mm Biocor valve and tricuspid valve repair with 28 mm Edwards classic tricuspid ring. It is now 6 weeks since my operation and I have had raves from my cardiologist, asthma Dr., friends and relatives marveling how well I have progressed.

I also received a Leedless Pacmaker from the Clinic two days after and that was an additional miracle. I can't say enough to tell you he saved my life and put me on this new road. Gifted and genius."
