Dr. Bavaria saved my life 2 years ago in an emergency surgery (Transverse Aortic Arch Dissection Repair). I was not aware that I had an Aortic Aneurysm until it was almost too late. I return to see Dr. Bavaria for a follow-up yearly. This past appointment he told me that my Dissection was "cured". uncommon in that type surgery. Truly miraculous!! I thank God every day for putting Dr. Bavaria in my path on that particular day and time. He is awesome!

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.
