9 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Hodges

"My cardiologist recommended Dr. Hodges to me when she discovered that I had a murmur and severe mitral valve regurgitation caused by a bacterial infection in my heart a few months back. During my meeting with Dr. Hodges, I learned about his extensive background in mitral valve repair and research, which I reviewed on HeartValveSurgery.com. I was impressed to learn that Dr. Hodges has performed over 500+ mitral valve repairs, which gave me confidence in choosing him for my surgery.

The operation went as planned with no issues, and I am happy that I chose Dr. Hodges to perform this complicated mitral valve surgery with the added CABG procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Hodges for anyone needing mitral valve repairs."

"My care from beginning-to-end was excellent. Dr Hodges explained everything very clearly and answered all our questions. My mitral valve repair went perfectly and staff kept my husband updated thru out.

Dr Hodges talked to him after. Surgery was at Northwestern in Chicago and care was also outstanding and I was only in hospital 3 days total. Two weeks out, I'm doing great!"
