Debunking the Ross Procedure Complications

Dr. Ismail El-Hamamsy, MD PhD


Given that the Ross Procedure has been around for a long time, why is it still relatively obscure when it comes to aortic valve replacement options, and why are there still many persistent questions about it its effectiveness? For example, how could it be beneficial to make a one-valve procedure into a two-valve procedure? And how should a patient go about finding the right surgeon or institution to perform the Ross Procedure? Cardiac Surgeon Ismail El-Hamamsy addresses these questions and more.
