Professor Cicek performed outstanding professionalism by providing an open heart surgery (replacing a conduit after truncus arteriosus radical surgery). He is a person who stayed in the hospital for 3 days after the surgery and had never left. I have never seen someone who went through all situations with your child. I have never seen someone with a strong belief in your child go home soon and live a happy life. My child's case is very complex and rare. There are not so many kids in the world who born with this type of defect. I definitely can advise Professor Cicek as a great Surgeon who saved my baby's life twice. She is alive and this is a miracle that was done by his talented hands and perfect strategy.

Dr. cicek performed a thrombopulmonary endarterectomy on my husband in 2017. He was in the hospital for six weeks and in a rehab facility for another month. After that he had some home rehab for a month. Now he walks almost every day and does most of our grocery shopping. He also rides his John Deere mower to cut our grass. He is doing great and is now 81 and turning 82 in Sep. Dr. Cicek did a great job and was always very assuring to me that all would be well. He saved my husband's life. I'm sure hubby wouldn't have made it more than a few weeks longer. Thanks to Dr. Cicek, the Mayo staff and all others who make things run smoothly there. Also, Thank the Lord.

Dr. Cicek replaced my aortic valve in April 2018. He is an amazing surgeon, extremely professional, and was very straight forward about the options I had. He did not push me into a decision but rather laid out the risks of the various options and let me make the decision. He was able to perform my Aortic valve replacement via a mini sternotomy and I was out of the hospital in 4 days!! Mayo Clinic has the BEST surgeons and Dr. Cicek is certainly living up to this standard of excellence.
