3.5 years ago this outstanding surgeon did a quadruple bypass on me. I was 71 and had what they call a widow maker that was caught just in time. I have felt perfect since that time and owe it all to Dr. Sell. I think this surgeon is on top of any thoracic surgeon in the world.

He's the best. He replaced my aortic valve, aortic root and fixed my atrilfibrelation in 2015. I will be eternally grateful to him and his amazing staff at Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

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.
