"I had my mitral valve repaired via minimally invasive surgery on September 4, 2012 by Dr. James Gammie at University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore. Dr. Gammie had previously repaired my mom's mitral valve just 2 1/2 years prior. He is an incredible surgeon...very intelligent and so caring. He answers all questions simply and infromatively. I am now almost 5 months out from my surgery and am greatly improved in terms of my health. Plus, the scarring due to the minimallly invasive surgery is less...I have 3 scars...one on my right side (from the chest tube), one in my groin from the heart/lung machine and the main one is hidden under my right breast. All are relatively small compared to what I could have had during an open procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Gammie for anyone needing mitral valve repair or replacement."
