"You know, that up until a few months ago, I had just about lost hope. Even my doctors were saying was that my lungs were responsible for my feeling so bad. It just seems incomprehensible now to me that they had overlooked my heart. I am quite sure that it has been the major problem for probably the last 3-5 years or so. Thank you to Dr. Mark Russo, my heart surgeon, and his team."

"I was at home when I felt my heart palpitating more than usual. I had a hard time breathing and they couldn't control my heart rate. My doctors transferred me to Dr. Russo because no other hospital by me could do the procedure. I felt better the next day and no longer have a hard time breathing. My thanks to all who have helped me."

"I had a lot of shortness of breath before surgery. Now, I can walk and talk without any problems. Before, I could not carry my groceries into the house without stopping and taking a rest. I am so grateful to my doctors including Dr. Mark Russo."

"I underwent a TAVR with Dr. Russo and his team. I feel so much better than I have in a long, long time. I have more energy and can breathe so much better. My wife and the family tell me I am more alert and that I finally have some color back to my face."

"I had a transcatheter aortic valve replacement performed by Dr. Russo. I am grateful to Dr. Russo and his team. My heart is better, and I no longer need to wear oxygen. In fact, I felt better the moment I woke up. My story is here http://tinyurl.com/bm6t6bl. "
