"Aortic valve replacement"

Anything else?

I had Aortic valve replacement in September 2012. My treatment was first class from diagnosis to being discharged 5 days after surgery. The nursing staff were caring, considerate and efficient. The doctors in charge of my care were exceptional. I owe my life to my surgeon and his team. My sincere thanks to the CTC.
