Dr. Takayama's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Takayama "Dr. Hiroo Takayama is a heart surgeon. He graduated from University of Tokyo in 1996. To date, he has performed approximately 1,000 cardiac surgical procedures, of which 500 involved heart valve operations. He performs surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. "I believe my greatest strength as a heart surgeon is that I have an expertise in operating on patients with complex aortic disease and/or significant heart failure. These patients are often deemed inoperable elsewhere, and usually require a specific perioperative care to protect a previously damaged heart that may also require temporary circulatory support." His cardiac specialties include: aortic surgery, surgery for heart failure and surgery for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dr. Takayama's clinical interests relative to heart valve surgery include: valve-sparing aortic root surgery, aortic valve repair and mitral valve repair, heart failure surgery, ventricular support and cardiac transplantation"

From start to finish Dr. TAKAYAMA and his staff, were top notch and very organized. He is the most humble man you will meet. Very kind and respectful.

Best decision I ever made. A few weeks ago, Dr. Takayama performed an aortic root replacement in an amazingly unintrusive way. Even saved the valve that every other doctor assumed was a goner. He probably added many decades to my life. Another day in the office for this guy.
