About Dr. Kristen Sell-Dottin,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Kristen Sell-Dottin and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Michigan in 2011. Mayo Clinic performs more than 4,500 cardiac surgeries each year. We are experts in treating pediatric, congenital and complex forms of heart valve disease using minimally invasive procedures including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and robotic mitral valve repair. In addition, Mayo Clinic specializes in treating cardiac conditions often related to heart valve disease including atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease and aortic aneurysms. I regularly perform surgery at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my work ethic, as demonstrated by my attention to detail, individual attention and compassion for my patients.
3 Patient Reviews for
"The best doctor I have ever seen. I've lived in 3 states and Dr. Sell-Dottin is best."
-- Christopher Mamp, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, Root Replacement, 03/03/2023
"Dr. Sell-Dottin did a fantastic job of replacing my mitral valve in a minimally-invasive procedure. She and her team at Mayo Clinic Arizona closely monitored my recovery in the hospital.
I felt like I was receiving the very best care available. I was able to go home just 5 days after the procedure. I highly recommend this surgeon."
-- Wes Edens, Mitral Valve, Valve Replacement, 09/07/2021
I was able to avoid open heart surgery. I was released from the hospital just 24 hours after my minimally-invasive aortic valve procedure. I was able to avoid 6 weeks of recovery that most surgical patients require. I was also able to avoid a mechanical valve and blood thinners for life!
I am now one week beyond aortic valve surgery and I have no restrictions. INCREDIBLE!"
