About Dr. Ismail El-Hamamsy, Heart Surgeon
Greetings! I am Dr. Ismail El-Hamamsy, a cardiac surgeon who graduated from Universite de Montreal in 2000. Over the years, I have performed around 2,500 cardiac surgeries, focusing on heart valve procedures, which make up 1,800 of my cases. I am actively involved in surgeries at Mount Sinai Hospital.
My primary strength lies in prioritizing my patients. In my practice, I firmly believe that each patient deserves personalized attention and care. I understand that patients are more than just their clinical condition; they have unique stories, backgrounds, and life goals. When it comes to aortic root procedures, including various techniques like aortic valve repair, reconstructive root surgery, and the Ross procedure, I engage with each patient individually. This approach allows us to develop a surgical solution that is tailored to their specific needs, ensuring optimal long-term results and an improved quality of life.

- Valve-sparing aortic root replacement

In addition, I have research and clinical interests specific to:
- Aortic aneurysms and connective tissue disease
- Long-term outcomes of aortic reconstructive surgery
- Innovative aortic surgical approaches
