"My experience with Doctor Jaggers was phenomenal. I am 31 and this was my second open heart (first was at birth). Doctor Jaggers performs surgery both at the Children's Hospital Denver and at the University Colorado Hospital. He opted to operate on me at Childrens which was interesting be 31. It went fantastic and the results have been amazing. I have been able to keep my profession as a career firefighter!"

"The Ross Procedure that Dr, Jaggers performed was on my son not on me. My son, who was diagnosed with aortic stenosis, was 5 years old at the time. We were not in a position to choose a surgeon but my son's pediatric cardiologist spoke highly of Dr. Jaggers' work. The Ross procedure was performed and the homograft used for pulmonary valve is leaking slightly at 20 months post-op which I think is luck of the draw. Functionally my son's surgery was a great success, he's able to run around with the other kids now and everything was straightforward. Dr. Jaggers is pleasant and concise but does not have an overly warm bedside manner. However, he has a very efficient team and a personal liaison was assigned to us who was a much warmer person and kept in close contact."
