Hello @twocents, the doctors should be answering this question during the session.

Hi @janicepike — if you are referring to my post, I meant it as a reply to what @cynaburst said. Please take no offense — I meant none. Just reassurance for @keyster1967 that Dr. Said is well-qualified to perform septal myectomy. This surgery is scary to undertake (as perhaps all surgeries are), and I just wanted to reassure people that all three doctors are very well trained and qualified. 🙂
Full disclosure: I am a moderator here AND I work at Mayo. I wanted to confirm what @cynaburst wrote that Dr. Said is fully trained in this operation and does this procedure several times a week — you will be in great hands with any of the three surgeons here who perform this operation.
Hello @eelnaloblob18 , I work with the heart practice for all three Mayo sites. Did you get all the information you need? If not, I will follow up with our cardiac surgeons. Thank you for your insightful questions. It is good that you are being proactive in doing research about outcomes.
Thank you for all your questions today and for joining our webinar on HCM and apical myectomy. We will ask Drs. Ommen and Schaff to respond to as many unanswered questions as possible.

Hello @julioborhidan I forwarded your question to Dr. Dearani’s team. While we can’t diagnose a medical condition via this platform, if you could send your medical records to Dr. Joseph Dearani, he can review and make a recommendation based on those records. You may call 1-507-255-2000 or mail to Dr. Joseph Dearani at Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905. Thank you.
The webinar has concluded. In the following week we will work on answering your questions that were not addressed during the webinar.
