On August 17, 2012 I was wheeled into the operating room at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. The previous day I was placed in an ambulance in Stuart, Florida in order to be transported 4 hours (250 miles) to Shands. At 49 years old I had an aortic root aneurysm, a pulmonary embolism, and was in need of a Bentall procedure. After countless hours searching for a surgeon with Bentall procedure experience, I located Dr. Meldrum at Shands. He's incredible, and gave me more life with my family

I was so scared to have heart surgery but I am glad I did. Not as bad as I thought it would be and what a life changer in a good way. It was over before I knew it and recovering at home and I can breathe now. Thought it was my lungs but it was my heart.

Dr Meldrum saved my Father's life. He was compassionate and caring. He answered all questions that we had, and gave my father another chance at life. We can never thank him enough. We would highly recommend Dr. Meldrum to your family. In a very difficult time, he gave us hope, and it was a success! My Father is doing very well now, and again, we send our heartfelt thanks.
