I am a recently retired MD in FL who had mitral annuloplasty and Afib cryoablation by Dr. Murphy in December 2010 with so far perfect outcome. No more paroxysmal afib and heart size returned to normal post op with normal function. Dr. Murphy is God-sent and made a huge difference in my life quality and expectancy!

Dr. Murphy conducted robotic surgery to repair my Mitral valve in 2011. I am pleased to say that I have no limitations, enjoy weightlifting, backpacking (15 miles a day average during trips), and bicycling. I am eternally grateful for his skill and ability to keep me relaxed about the procedure when I was prepping for treatment. Thank you Dr. Murphy!
