This content was provided by Dr. Anyanwu "Dr. Anyanwu trained in Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Harefield Hospital, London, United Kingdom and affiliated hospitals in the University of London Network. He was trained by internationally renowned surgeons including Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, Professor Gilles Dreyfus and Professor Tom Treasure. Under the tutelage of Professor Yacoub and Dr. Ashgar Khaghani, he was trained in Heart and Lung Transplantation. At Harefield hospital he was also trained in various aspects of heart valve surgery including homograft implantation, another field pioneered by Professor Yacoub's team. His other areas of specialized training include multiple arterial revascularization using bilateral skeletonized internal mammary artery grafts--this operation is more durable than the standard coronary artery bypass surgery using a single mammary artery and leg veins for bypass. Following his training in England, Dr. Anyanwu joined the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York in 2004 as a Senior Clinical Fellow. His primary interests were Mitral Valve Repair, Complex Valvular surgery, Surgery for Heart Failure and Re-operative Cardiac Surgery. Under the close instruction of Dr. David Adams, Dr. Anyanwu was trained intensively in the entire spectrum of techniques for mitral valve repair, and is one of only a handful of surgeons in the United States to have received formal training in mitral valve repair to a proficient and advanced level. His main interests are in minimally invasive mitral valve repair and mitral valve repair for dilated cardiomyopathies. Apart from mitral repair, during the Fellowship at Mount Sinai, Dr. Anyanwu acquired expertise in complex re-operative valvular surgery, and heart failure surgery. Working with Dr. Adams, Dr. Anyanwu has led the advanced heart failure program, introducing new mechanical devices for circulatory support and has also re-established the combined heart-lung transplant program with two combined heart-lung transplants performed in 2006 so far."
