"Dr. Gregory Matter is an excellent surgeon with great bedside manner. He replaced my mitral valve with a St. Jude to match the St. Jude I already had in my aortic valve position. This was a high risk procedure as it was my 4th open heart surgery via sternotomy. Dr. Matter studied under the tutelage of Dr. Albert Pacifico from UAB Hospital in Alabama who subsequently did my aortic valve replacement in 1983 via Kono technique. I spent a total of 7 days in the hospital before I was released. I had an echocardiogram two weeks post op. My ejection went from 25-30% back to 60-65%. It's now almost two years after surgery and my echo still reveals an ejection fraction of 60%."
