"Aortic valve replacement and double bypass"

About: Royal Brompton Hospital

I had major heart surgery last year and now feel like a new woman. My thanks go out to the doctor and their team. The doctor is a great surgeon and I owe my life to them. Their team always kept me updated and were very professional. The nurses in ICU and HDU and the Princess Alexander ward were angels and made me feel relaxed through a worrying time.

The royal Brompton also look after my sarcoidosis as well,so I am really grateful for such a good hospital. Keep up the good work guys
