I've just completed my 2nd CTO surgery by Dr. Dimitri Kampaliotis. I had 2 coronary veins that were 100% blocked. It has only been 48 hrs since surgery and I already feel 100% better. My previous cardiologist had told me that since I had 2 previous by-pass surgeries there was nothing else that could be done for my condition. My medical doctor suggested I consider the rather new CTO procedure perfomed by Dr. Kampaliotis, and after consulting with the doctor, he agreed that I was a viable candiate for the procedure. I'm completley satisfied with the outcome and highly suggest anyone with conditions like mine to consider this procedure. Dr. Kampaliotis and his team was a life saver for me. That you Dr. Kampaliotis. Larry Davis Eatonton, GA.
