Doctor Arash Salemi, cardiac surgeon along with co-ordinating cardiologist, Dr. Torre performed a TAVR operation on me on May 10, 2021. The operation was a success. There were many tests and evaluations done by these doctors to see whether my arteries and heart could accommodate this operation with minimal risk. I was thrilled that neither doctor mentioned my weight 240 lbs 5'5 &1/2 " which was in my mind a major risk, but it appears they discounted that as a significant problem. The after care by nurses and aides in the hospital was excellent as well. In addition, the one time post visit to the doctor's clinic to conduct a multifaceted examination after the operation, viewed the replacement valve for complete functioning as successful! If you need a replacement aortic valve, I strongly recommend Dr. Salemi and his team!!

We have already recommended Dr Salemi and NYPresbyterian valve center to everyone we know. He is not only an amazingly gifted surgeon, he also is a great communicator and listener -- with a sassy sense of humor to boot. How lucky for us our cardiologist recommended Dr Salemi.

I had aortic valve replacement 1 year ago, couldn't walk to the store for a cup of coffee without feeling shortness of breath. A week after the surgery I had my dog out for a long walk (about 1 1/2 miles). The surgery was very fast and I was home in 2 days. If you need this type of surgery, don't hesitate, you have found the right doctor and hospital.

We were wildly impressed. Dr. Salemi saw me on the spur of the moment because of a foul up with the original appointment. He was calm, authoritative, extremely clear in his explanations, reassuring, funny and everything else one would want a surgeon to be in a consult.

Heart surgery used to require a long recovery. I was in the hospital for only one night and except for being tired and slightly achy i was fine and back to normal in short order. Thank you dr Salemi and the valve team. This was a miracle procedure. I feel totally normal.

Unquestionably my lucky moment was having Dr Salemi replace my Aortic Valve last June with the TAVR procedure. He is the KING: brilliantly gifted , highly professional and brings along a fabulous team in the operating room. I went home the next day and he told me to “ get moving and stay active; no lying around!”
