The surgery itself went very well. But Dr. Hayden failed to clamp the ribcage to allow the cartilage to form. Instead he just stapled the skin. We were told the cartalige will form on its own. Six years later I can see my fathers heart through his skin. We have been told by other doctors that to repair that damage is not an option. Now he needs more surgery and it can not be preformed through the old opening as it would be too risky due to the inapropriate closure. Before having surgery preformed by this doctor please go over all points from opening to closing so you do not have a large gaping hole in your chest.
I had to have emergency open heart surgery due to bacterial endocarditis. Dr. Hayden, Dr. Shayan and Dr. Karim all looked after me! God Bless these men!! Being young and health helped to save my life - it would not have happened without these doctors and especially Dr. Hayden
1999 Dr Hayden preformed Emergency Double-By-Pass surgry. I could not have asked for a better doctor or surgeon! I healed up from the surgery, got my memory back but never did as well as I expected. I had problems with my chest for many years and finally discovered I had an alergy to the nickel plating on the sterum wires. Again Dr. Hayen preformed the surgery to remove the wires from my chest and the scar is barely visable and I am doing good. I've had 8 years of additional life (and counting) thanks to Dr. Hayden. Anyone lucky enough to have him as their surgeon has the best!
I work as an RN with Dr. Hayden and he's my hero. Not only is he incredibly kind and patient with his patients he is consistently caring with all the nurses in the unit. I've worked in several Cardiac Surgery Units and this gem of a man and doctor is definitely the "gold standard."
