Hello! My name is Dr. Per Wierup and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Lund University in 1990. To date, I have performed approximately 4,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 2,500 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Cleveland Clinic. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is that I am extremely confident in my three-dimensional sense when preparing all heart valves. My diverse background and experience has made me an expert in various aspects of cardiac surgery.
2 Patient Reviews for
"Dr. Wierup embodies the combination of artistic endeavor meeting science and the expertise to implement those unique qualities into a surgical procedure. His ability to communicate not only what the procedure would entail but to also explain the possible complications and limitations, not only made me feel confident with his knowledge but presented a very humble quality. The comfort level as I entered this procedure was extremely high due to the experience of communication, kindness and genuine concern Dr. Wierub exhibited. I would highly recommend Dr. Wierub and would certainly offer to be a spokesperson on his behalf and all of the ancillary staff at Cleveland Clinic. I am doing very well and look forward continued positive healing. "

"I am a 78-year old male who was born with a bicuspid aortic heart valve and has had trouble breathing since the day I was born. I had my aortic valve replaced with a mechanical valve in at age 65 at St Luke's hospital in Houston. I still had trouble catching my breath.
In October 2017, my legs, feet and stomach were swollen grotesquely due to congestive heart failure. My cardiologist said I would not last til spring w/o surgery. So, I turned to Dr Per Wierup. Doctor Wierup replaced my mechanical aortic valve and my mitral valve and repaired my tricuspid valve. After perfect surgery, my heart pumped off 35 pounds of fluid and now I breathe effortlessly for the first time in my life.
Five months later, I'm walking about 4 miles a day and lifting weights. Per Wierup is the best heart surgeon in the world and the Cleveland Heart Clinic is, as advertised, the best heart clinic in the world. Thanks for a new life, Dr. Wierup!!!"
