"From the first visit with Dr. Varghese, I knew we were making the right choice."

-- Joseph De Luca, heart valve surgery patient

"Dr. Varghese assisted Dr. Stelzer with my Ross procedure at Mount Sinai. When I first consulted with Dr. Stelzer about the Ross, one of my more pressing concerns was the potential need for future intervention and the fact that not many surgeons have expertise around this surgery. He put that concern to bed very quickly when he told me about Dr. Varghese and how closely he works with him. I first met Dr. Varghese in the holding area prior to my surgery when he reassured me we were good to go and that he was going to keep my incision "nice and short"-- fast forward to the ICU, if memory serves, he was the first person I remember seeing and he said he was able to keep my incision to a mere 11cm for a very complex surgery. I am 4 weeks post-op today and have had minimal pain/discomfort in my sternum and the scar looks phenomenal. I can't say enough about my experience at Mount Sinai and the work of Dr. Varghese, Dr. Stelzer, and all of their nurses and PAs. "
