Ratings for Dr. Jan Quaegebeur
2/27/08 a date burned into my brain forever. My daughter had a rare heart condition called Subaortic stenosis. after 10 yrs of going to 3 states 3 childrens hospitals for 3 opinions it was Dr Q that said its go time. He saved my daughters life. She is an all star cheerleader with NO limitations. repaired her like new and i am forever grateful beyond comprehension. He is not God, but he is the closest possible thing i can ever imagine. thanks Dr Q~
My son was operated on by Dr. Quaegebeur at 6 months old in 1994. He repaired his ASD, VSD and pulmonary stenosis. My son is now 20 and has a healthy heart. I credit Dr. Q for saving my son's life and would recommend him without reservation. He was excellent! My experience taught me that if you have a baby or child that needs heart surgery, do your homework and find a first class, reputable cardiac surgeon that specializes in operating ONLY on children. Good luck!
Dr. Q operated on our son when he was only a few days old. We hoped he could save his life. Sadly our story did not have the same happy ending as the other people who posted here. He did meet with us before and after our son's surgery. I remember the staff being optimistic about the surgery but looking back on on it maybe not as honest as they should l been about his chances.
Dr. Q and his staff are knowledgable and instrumental in saving my granddaughter Isla's life who was born with TGA on 9/29/2009. Not only did he save her at birth but two days later he saved her twice more during TGA surgery then she arrested following surgery. She is now three yrs. old with a very normal happy life. She brings us so much joy and we thank Dr. Q. for his expertise.
My daughter had transposition of the great vessels almost 20 years ago. We were blessed that Dr.Q(as he is called) worked at Columbia Presbyterian. At the time, it was my understanding that there were 2 surgeons in the world that did this surgery. Even some of the other MD's referred to him as "God". The surgery was very successful and we will be greatful to him for the rest of our lives. My daughter is now almost 20 and runs 3-4 miles a day. Thank you Dr.Q.
Our daughter Christine was born in 1995 with Transposition of the Great Arteries. She was operated on by Dr. Quaegebeur at 4 days of age. Our daughter is now almost 16 years old and doing wonderful! No medications, no restrictions. We were truly blessed the day this surgeon came into our lives. God truly does work through the talent in this surgeons hands. I made a cross stitch picture for him which I heard was hung in the hallway near the operating room. We have sent letters and pictures of our daughter almost every year since her surgery. He is using the talent God has given him, and we are so very thankful he is here to help the children born with heart defects. We truly believe Dr. Quaegebeur is an angel on earth. If you want the best for your child, Dr. Quaegebeur is the surgeon to call in your time of need. God Bless this man for all he does and his talents. We love you Dr. Quaegebeur!
In 2006 Dr Q performed an open heart surgery on me when I was 12 years old fixing a very rare condition. If I had not gotten the surgery I was told I had a high percentage of dropping dead. Now I play varsity soccer and run varsity track. None of this would have been possible without him and I quite literally owe him my life, God Bless.
