  • Myectomy at St. Luke's Roosevelt in NY

    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to make a general THANK YOU to everyone in this FORUM. I am currently a patient of Dr. Sherrid in the St. Luke's Roosevelt system and it has been suggested that I have their version of the Myectomy operation performed. The decision is going a lot easier thanks to all the helpful posts. Again...Thank you!

    My question is, has anyone had the operation performed at St. Luke's Roosevelt? I have been reading a lot about all the other hopitals that perform this operation and have not read anything about it at St. Luke's Roosevelt. I was told that they have only performed 31 of the operations but I dont really know how that number compares to the other locations, well except for Boston

    Just thought I would ask.

    My suggestion would be to contact the HCMA office on Thursday and speak with Lisa. She will be able to answers any quesitons you may have.
