Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Glower Jr My particular area of interest is what we call structural heart disease in adults. That usually involves valve problems things like muscle bound hearts tumors of the heart or sometimes arrhythmias. Another area of interest for me is minimally invasive surgery which involves entering the heart area through the ribs on the side rather than through the breast bone either manually with a camera or robotically. Surgeons are very hands-on people. We like doing things. But most of all we like helping people talking with patients and their families and helping them make up their minds about whether to have a procedure done what kind of procedure to have and helping them get through the procedure afterwards. Thats what we really enjoy doing. Thats really satisfying.
