Dr. Starr has performed heart surgery on me twice in my lifetime. I was a 10 year old boy the first time. He did a life saving Tetrology of Fallot repair in March of 1965.
40 years later, On September 9, 2005, Dr. Starr operated on me again. This time, for a much needed a pulmonary valve replacement. It was not possible to do it during the previous surgery. An Edwards bovine tissue valve was implanted. A recent echocardiogram shows it to be working well. I want to thank Dr. Starr for giving me the gift of life...twice! I also congratulate him on this 50th year milestone. Well done, sir!
