Exceptional orthogonal polynomials are complete families of orthogonal polynomials that arise as eigenfunctions of a Sturm-Liouville problem. Antonio Duran discovered a gap in the original proof of completeness for exceptional Hermite polynomials, that has propagated to analogous results for other exceptional families In this paper we provide an alternative proof that follows essentially the same arguments, but provides a direct proof of the key lemma on which the completeness proof is based. This direct proof makes use of the theory of trivial monodromy potentials developed by Duistermaat and Grtinbaum and Oblomkov. (C) 2019 Published by Elsevier Inc.
