"Great guy been doing this a long time no nonsense down to earth very conservative on his prognosis. I am glad he was my surgeon."

"This was my third surgery -- a very serious repair of damage that occurred during my second surgery - an aortic valve and root homograft (4 years previously). The aortic valve in the homograft was failing and the amount of calcification was significant. Dr. Vladimir Birjiniuk was particularly successful in calming my wife and I as we faced yet again another surgery. His surgical skill was phenomenal, he completed the procedure in less time than anticipated and my recovery time in the hospital was minimized, I was home for Christmas!"

"Dr. Vladimir Birjiniuk is an excellent surgeon. He repaired my titanium aortic valve in an emergency procedure, because a suture had broken, and I was bleeding into my chest cavity. He explained everything to me thoroughly, and was extremely supportive and available after the operation. His skills are exceptional, and it's not an overstatement to say he saved my life! Thank you Dr. Birjinuik!!"

"I interviewed one other surgeon at a major Boston hospital in addition to Dr. Birjiniuk. The experience was like night and day. Dr. Vladimir Birjiniuk reviewed my ultrasound with me to explain what he was seeing and what he would do during surgery whereas the other doctor couldn't even access my ultrasound and barely gave me the time of day. Before and after surgery, Dr. Birjiniuk answered all my questions with patience and care. I would recommend him and Mt. Auburn Hospital to anyone I know who is facing the scary prospect of heart surgery (or any kind of surgery - the hospital also is great!). "

"I interviewed 3 top-notch Boston area surgeons for my Mitral valve repair. I chose Dr. Vladimir Birjiniuk due to my overall level of comfort with his credentials and personality. Extremely warm and caring, he took extra time to answer all my questions and offered counsel for the less obvious choices that had to be made, such as traditional vs. minimally-invasive surgery and organic vs. mechanical valve (had I needed a replacement). He worked with my cardiologist and primary care physician to develop a best course for my recovery, and I feel great! Highly recommended. "

"I was out of the hospital in five days after aortic valve replacement and triple bypass. He was easy to talk with and has done thousands of these operations. He is a hidden gem in an area where many of these operations are performed"
