"Dr. Girardi is a brilliant surgeon, and a very caring and humble man. He and his team saved my wife's life." - J.R.
"Astonishing team who practice medicine as it is intended to be practiced. Everyone on the team, including (or maybe especially) the nurses on the floor is meticulous, kind and thorough. Dr. Girardi has very special skills, but his assembly of his surgical team is nothing short of miraculous. Hat's off to all of you." - N.T.
"I had robotic mitral valve repair on August 9, 2012. Last Thursday, August 13, I had my 3 year check up with my local cardiologist (I live in Rhode Island now) and everything was perfect. I take no medications. To celebrate, I went for a single handed sail on Narragansett Bay on my 27' foot sailboat. When I first saw Dr. Guy, I couldn't walk 27 feet without getting out of breath. Thank you Dr. Guy!" - Anonymous
"Dr. Guy performed the best robotic mitral valve repair on me. Dr. Guy repaired my mitral valve via a minimally invasive robotic procedure on May 5, 2015. I selected him per the recommendation of my cardiologist, even though others were insisting I go to the Cleveland Clinic on its reputation and high published ranking. Two months after my surgery, I am very happy and satisfied with my decision. The operation had the best possible outcome. Even though my mitral valve was severely impaired, resulting to a high degree of regurgitation, Dr. Guy was able to avoid a mechanical valve replacement, and a sternotomy.
Two weeks after the operation, I could walk outdoors for 1/2 to 1 hour at a time, twice a day. Test performed by my cardiologist showed a normal valve repair, and I returned to work less than six weeks after the operation. I am currently making great progress at my cardiac rehabilitation program. Dr. Guy is one of few surgeons in the country and the world who have mastered the complex and delicate minimally invasive robotic mitral valve surgery. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs this operation. Thank you Dr. Guy & Team!"
