On June 18, 2016 I had a quadruple bypass performed by Dr Sell. After my short recovery I have been better the I was 20 years ago. The scar is minimal. and there is nothing I cannot do. I owe my life to this Marvelous man and to my wife for forcing me to see someone. Thank you Dr. Sell I am forever grateful of your talent.

Three years ago in 2018, this outstanding surgeon replaced my aortic valve and corrected an aortic aneurysm. During the surgery, my family received frequent updates as to what was happening such as "10:02 - in surgery - going well" and "10:45 - all continues to go well...replacing the aorta and aortic valve now" and "11:20 - the new aortic valve is in and we are half-way finished with replacing Dave's aorta". Dr. Sell and his staff also did an excellent job caring for me after the surgery during my recovery period in the hospital. I highly recommend Dr. Sell for all open-heart by-pass procedures and I am very grateful for his skills as a heart surgeon.

Dr Sell and his team at Sarasota memorial were fantastic with my dads bypass surgery. Kept us informed all along the way. Used the EASE app to give us updates during the surgery. Feel very fortunate that my dad is under Dr. Sells’ care. Five stars for sure!!

Dr. Sell is best heart surgeon in the world by comparison. On April 26, 2016, he replaced my aortic valve, repaired my tricuspid valve, performed one bypass; and did maze procedure to treat AFib. After surgery, I had no pain or complications. He exceeded my expectations; he was very caring during follow-up. A few months after surgery, I feel good; my echocardiogram showed ejection fraction in normal range; and my EKG did not detect atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. I strongly recommend him.
