    Dr. Bavaria saved my life!!! I had a double dissected thoracic aortic arch aneurysm that was hemorrhaging. I was airlifted to Penn, Dr. Bavaria came back to the hospital and did an amazing repair. I was able to go home in 5 days, was back to most activities in 2 months and completely recovered and back to all of my normal activities in 5 months. He is amazing and also very humble!! We can't begin to thank him for all that he has done for us.
