"I had cardiothoracic surgery at Blackpool hospital"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Anything else?

I was transferred as an emergency in jan 2012 from blackburn I had chronic heart failure due to an aortic dissection my surgery was done in feb where my aortic root was replaced with a synthetic one my aortic arch and carotid arteries where repaired, my descending aorta was fenestrated and my aortic valve was replaced with a metal valve. My family and I are very happy with the care and understanding from not only the staff on ward 38 but the whole surgery team including the consultant surgeon although I had no choice in being sent to blackpool but I would advise anyone needing expert care for a heart problem to choose blackpool.
