After being neglected by local doctors, I took control of my health care and found the perfect operation to correct my congenital aortic stenosis. I had a Ross Procedure on November 10, 2006 which saved my life at the age of 34. My case should be encouragement for others to act as their own advocate. I feel better than I've ever felt in my life and I am on NO MEDICATION. NO COUMADIN.

  1. the only reason I am watching this is because i want to be a surgon when
    grow up I’m in high school and this is great stuff for my project. your
    lucky your alive best wishes

  2. I want to become a cardiac surgeon 🙂 I basically want to help the poor
    people in India, who can’t afford the heart surgeries.

  3. i hope i will get a place on medical university this year! watching and
    lrning about that stuff like a open-hearted surgieries etc is my passion! 

  4. I’m having the Ross procedure Monday and I’m also scared of not surviving
    the surgery. I was diagnosed with Aortic regurgitation in 99 and was given
    a metal valve. Last year I was supposed to receive the Ross procedure, but
    thank God, my surgeon discovered an underlying problem that no doctor had
    ever seen. He had to correct it first before proceeding to the Ross. I’m at
    that point and I have a friend tell me they watched a video. I didn’t want
    to, but I’m glad I did. Thank you.

  5. It’s sad to me that you feel that way. Who gave the surgeon the ability to
    perform these miracles? …God.

  6. I’m Sherrie but to think that god had anything to do with this surgeon who
    has studied the anatomy and physiology of the heart for at least 10 years
    is naive and pathetic.

  7. Hello! I have a biscupid aorta stenosis with gradient 94mmHg and my doctors
    have recommended me to operate it, namely, to replace it for a mechanic
    one. I am 27 years old I am very afraid of this operation. However, talking
    about the best method for me to be used, I have heard very good comments
    regarding this Ross procedure, because afterwards you do not have to take
    anticoagulants for the rest of your life. However, the problem with this
    procedure is, as far as I know, that is complicated.

  8. The problem with the Ross procedure so far as surgeons are concerned isn’t
    necessarily that it’s difficult – which it is, but a good surgeon will
    negate that issue – but rather, that instead of treating the one bad valve,
    you actually remove another valve to put it in its place. So you may have
    two valves that can go wrong in the future, not just the one. So far, that
    problem isn’t common, much more often than not both function well for the
    rest of your life, but know the risk. Hope you do well!

  9. Consult with your doctor on their opinion on the issue. Some recommend
    repairing the one valve, others may recommend the Ross, depending on their
    personal experience. Since they’re the ones operating, get their opinion on
    what works, and always feel free to get a second opinion

  10. Heys, thank you for your reply! Can you please explain me a bit how you
    felt right after the operation, as you first woke up? Thanks!

  11. I was actually one of 17 kids who was tested on for this procedure in 1993
    at UCSF. I was 17, the oldest trial. I was also the only one who had to
    have a pacemaker inserted during surgery. But 19 years later, I have not
    had to have my valve replaced. I have had other issues with my heart, but
    that was due to the birth of my son. I love life and thanks for posting the

  12. I have a question for you. My son has bicuspid aortic valve stenosis. He is
    almost 1 year old. When he was born they did a balloon to open the valve
    and it worked. At least for now. They said they will keep doing the balloon
    when needed til it doesn’t work any more and then they will have to replace
    it but the goal is to hold off on replacing it as much as possible till
    he’s more adult sized. The Ross procedure was something I looked at but
    wondered since you got a cadaver valve for the pulmonary valve do you have
    to take anti rejection drugs? And will it wear out like a bovine or pig
    valve and have to be replaced again? His cardiologist has said he’s a
    miracle. He said his valve is so thick and nasty but that by the grace of
    god it is working perfectly with no blockage and no leakage. The doc said
    that he will have to have the balloon done again around 4 or 5 years old.
    But they had said when they went in to do it that they didn’t think it was
    going to help and were more going in to get a better look at his heart and
    try to buy time to decide what to do. Anyway, I was really wondering about
    rejection and it wearing out. 

    1. Like I said you’re still assuming. First I was not asking everyone in
      you think I was looking up the Ross procedure in the first place?) I was
      not asking any average Joe or 12 yr old. Second I already said I was not
      basing my sons health care choices on youtube. Period! Third, I have done
      my research. I’ve done extensive research on the types of procedures he
      might one day need. There are still some things not listed like the
      likelihood of certain medications a patient might have to take. I was just
      curious what medications he had to take if any as a damn heads up.
      Something else for me to LOOK UP. Fourth, yeah I’m touchy about my son! If
      you had gone through what I went through for him and had to watch him go
      through then you would understand how your comment could piss someone like
      me off. I have the right to get touchy about being called an idiot when It
      comes to my son, or any of my kids. I hope it is telling about me. Know
      why? Cause it means I actually do care about my kids and will fight like
      hell for them. You should actually pay attention to what people are saying
      and who people are talking to. If you had paid attention you would have
      noticed I was talking to the man who uploaded the video of his procedure. I
      would have ignored any “advice” from anyone other than the poster of the
      vid and even then I wouldn’t take his “advice” just get an idea on
      medications my son MIGHT have to take some day so I can educate myself on
      every possibility.

    2. Speaking about paying attention, how about you notice the fact that I do
      not know you. There are many irresposble parents that would base their
      knowledge off a youtube comment. People can be bad parents if you haven’t
      noticed. Just wanted to make sure that you werent a terrible parent. Tried
      to get that point across but you didn’t listen. I stated it more clearly
      here so maybe you’ll understand.

    3. And the point I was making was that you shouldn’t always assume someone is
      a bad parent for asking for information and about personal experiences.

    4. Sorry to hear. Refuse to let negetivity into your spirit. Thank the lord
      you know christ .What a many testimonies you will share when some one needs

    5. And my point I was making was I didn’t know you and I value your son’s life
      over hurting your feelings.

  13. Hi everyone, i have a question. I had this surgery in 2001 when i was 8
    years old. I have no problems since then and i was wondering if it’s
    possible for someone like me to play a semi-amateur football….if there’s
    a chance im gonna ask my doctor but if there isnt i dont wanna see him just
    beacuse of this. Thanks! :)

    1. I had the surgery when I was 8 as well in 2002, I was able to play all the
      sports that I wanted, that being said I would tale this up with your
      cardiologists, for me I wouldn’t be able to due to the fact on Tuesday I
      received news that my heart as started to weaken again. I root for you and
      your dreams. To the maker of the video congrats on your new life never take
      it for granted.

  14. I had this procedure done in 1999 at the age of 16 because of congenital
    aortic stenosis. I ended up having an aneurysm in one of my arteries and it
    had to be tied off completely. In short, for the past 17 years I’ve had
    coronary artery disease. Things went well for a while. I started having
    PVCs, periods of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in 2004.
    In 2005 I had an ICD implanted. Having this procedure will keep you alive
    longer, yes, but your life will be forever changed because of it. You will
    never have a permanently normal functioning heart. I was told I would need
    my cadaver’s valve replaced after 10 years and my heart is still in good
    enough condition that valve replacement/repair is not needed in the near
    future. My EF is currently 40-45%, but after having this procedure done,
    you will have congestive heart failure for the rest of your life so a lower
    than normal EF is common. Good luck and best wishes to those needing this
    procedure. I can tell you I’m thankful at times to be alive but because of
    how my congenital heart defect has affected every aspect of my life, I wish
    I weren’t alive sometimes.
