"Thank you for my Aortic Root Replacement"

About: Golden Jubilee National Hospital / Cardiac Surgery Wishaw General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I was Diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome in October 2013.

In October 2014 I arrived at the Jubilee, terrified. Dr Nikki Walker's team put me right at ease. Mr Danton my surgeon was Fantasic and Surgery went well. After my surgery I spent 12 days in High Dependancy 1, due to having Heart Blocks.

Every single Nurse who put up with me deserves a Medal. First Class treatment from all staff Members. In November I had my Pacemaker fitted by Dr Gardiner.

I couldn't fault 1 thing about my experience at the Golden Jubilee.

Thank You ALL so much for everything.
