Mr Steven Livesey
26th April 2015
I Chose Consultant Mr. Steven Livesey and his Team due to my procedure for Mitral Valve Repair, as i needed a Surgeon with a High Volume Mitral Repair rate and Surgical Experience, as Mitral Repair best-practice standards of 25 annual Mitral Repairs per Surgeon and 50 Mitral Repairs by any hospital unit are the key. As the likelihood of Mitral Valve Repair is very heavily influenced by individual Surgeons' Mitral Valve Volume.
Mr Livesey has been a Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at the University Hospital Southampton since 1990. He has performed over 7500 cardiac operations in Southampton during this time.He has surgical experience in all aspects of adult cardiac surgery. Mr Livesey has a special interest and expertise in Mitral Valve Surgery. He is acknowledged as a British and International expert on Repair of the Mitral Valve, having performed over 1000 of these procedures, including his own now recognised modifications of mitral valve repair technique. Mr Livesey answered all my questions before and after my operation and even Post-Op in writing.
The Nurses were surprised at my fast recovery, within 1 day, so my Special Thanks go
to Mr Livesey and all his Team and all the kind and thoughtful staff who are doing a great job at Southampton General Hospital.
