      My husband was told he had 4 or 5 serious blockages in his heart. We were in an emergency situation and Dr Khawaja stepped in to do this quadruple bypass and saved my husbands life. Thank you

      Dr. Khawaja performed a very difficult surgery(2 valve replacements that were totally corroded away), in a rushed situation. Cardiologist stressed the severity and likelihood that chances of making it through this were very slim due to the severity of the time the infection had been eating away at my heart. We put our faith in Dr. Khawja and he did a textbook perfect surgery. The entire hospital was blown away and it was a true miracle worked through the hands of the doctor. He saved my life!
