On May 2017 Dr. Anderson replaced my aortic valve with stenosis , today I feel great full of energy . On the interview with Dr. Anderson he told me that after the operation I would be back to live a normal life , so far it’s true . The scar on my torso is minimal and you can hardly see it . Thank you Dr. Anderson and your team for such an amazing job.

This guy is amazing. He saved my life using minimally invasive techniques. I was out of the hospital 3 days after surgery and I feel great. I had other surgeons tell me if they had family in need of surgery they would have dr Anderson do it. He is very highly respected among cardiologist and cardiac icu doctors and nurses. The guy is a rockstar I am so happy I found him and he saved my chest tattoo of my son, which probably isn't important to many people but it meant a lot to me.
