Dr. Bates and his OR team did a beautiful job replacing my husband's aortic valve. His recovery has been rapid. The entire team approach is superb, and the back up by the Cardiovascular ICU staff was beyond compare. One can never be said to "enjoy" a surgical procedure, but this team makes it as pleasant as possible. You can feel positive of the best possible outcome with Dr Bates in charge.

I was transferred from another hospital where I was septic and wasn't expected to live. I had a very bad blood infection and it went to my heart. This excellent Dr replaced an infected heart valve and did by-pass to my heart also. He SAVED my life!
