Dr. Hammond Jr. In January of 2017 Dr. Hammond performed triple bypass surgery on my wife. Thanks to Dr. Hammond, my wife's life expectancy increased considerably. I would highly recommend him as a great thoracic surgeon.

Thanks to Dr. Hammond, my second birthday is February 17, 2017, when he performed a quadruple bypass on me. His calm, confident and caring demeanor reassured me at a time of great stress, which allowed me to enter the process with a quiet confidence in him and his abilities. By virtue of the fact that I am writing this review, my second life began that day and I have regained lost vitality thanks to Dr. Hammond's skilled mind and hands. If you are ever in a similar condition as mine, I would recommend waiting for an open date for surgery with this exceptionally qualified physician.

In 2010 Dr Hammond performed a mitral valve replacement under difficult conditions, my valve was 'shredded', I was 63 years old, and bloodless surgery was specified. It is now 2019 and I am still going strong as far as the mitral valve is concerned.

In February 2015, a year ago, Dr Hammond performed six bypass surgeries on me. Dr Hammond gave me back a new young life. I feel wonderful! I now run daily, lift weights, bike, hike, and start ever day by doing 100+ push-ups. God bless him.
