About Dr. Jeffrey Swanson,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Jeffrey Swanson and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Montpellier, France in 1977. To date, I have performed approximately 7,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 3,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Providence St Vincent Hospital. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is experience-based, intelligent, individualized judgement appropriately tailored to each patient prior to, during, and after their surgical intervention.
18 Patient Reviews for
"Dr. Swanson is fantastic. He came to visit me every night after my heart valve surgery. "
-- Theresa LoMonaco, heart valve surgery patient
"Very thorough in his explanation of the procedure, all though he openly admits he is working less (3 days a week) and nearing retirement. Dr. Swanson's experience and confidence in repairing my valve, gave me the confidence in choosing him.
I was in surgery for 3 hours and in ICU for 26 hours. I was walking around by the next day. I'm now walking 3 weeks later, 2-3 miles for each segment. I try to walk 2-3 segments a day.
I'm thrilled with my progress! Being healthy going into this and having a good surgeon made all the difference in my recovery."

I knew exactly what to expect. He was reassuring to me and my family on the day of surgery. He visited me daily in the hospital and I was home within 5 days. I highly recommend Dr. Swanson as one of the outstanding cardiac surgeons in the Pacific Northwest if not the United States. "
