About Dr. Samuel Pollock,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Samuel Pollock and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Kentucky in 1980. To date, I have performed approximately 12,000 cardiac surgeries, of which over 4,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at hospitals including Baptist Health Louisville and Baptist Health Floyd. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is the advantage I had in my training situation and the excellent partners I've had over the years for a lifelong learning experience. The most important aspect of cardiac surgery is the ability to be flexible. This I've learned in over 30 years of my cardiac surgery career.
2 Patient Reviews for
"Dr. Pollock was great and his bed side manner was relaxed. His staff was also very helpful in navigating the insurance maze. I had my surgery at 38 because endocarditis destroyed the valve so I was VERY apprehensive going into this. I liked that he never advocated any one procedure but was very informative about all the options including the pitfalls. This helped guide me to the right decision for me. All in all the guy saved my life and I am lucky to have had him do the surgery."

"Very laid back. Results so far, so good. I really can't compare because this is my first surgery. I'm seventy-five years of age, and have had excellent health until October, 2008. I picked up staph infection somewhere. I am a long time believer in alternative medicine, and do not approve of pharmaceutical drugs. I did not have any clogging of arteries and my heart was in good shape. I had atrial fibrillation since 2003."
