Ratings for Dr. James R. Edgerton
About 2 years ago, Dr. James R. Edgerton operated on me and performed what was supposed to be a non-invasive, min-maze procedure for my paroxysmal (occasional) afib. During the procedure, he tore my aorta, which required emergency open heart surgery to repair. My blood pressure had dropped to 20s systolic and I was near death. While in, Dr. Edgerton performed a full Cox maze procedure, which left me with permanent afib and later a pacemaker. My decision to go with this doctor was the worst mistake of my life. Complications such as a torn aorta should never happen in performing a simple mini-maze procedure. This doctor almost cost me my life and I certainly would not recommend him. My advice to anyone considering using Dr. Edgerton is look elsewhere.
Edgerton was referred to me by my electro cardiologist and did an excellent job on my Mini-Maze procedure. I felt comfortable with his knowledge and expertise in this area as this was my second time around to correct my condition that was treated several years ago by another doctor performing a similar procedure.
