Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zehr "My overall lifetime professional educational objective is to advance cardiac surgery internationally. I am involved in many international societies and have worked for many years in the area of international education for cardiac surgery. My day to day activities center on providing the most advanced quality cardiac surgery care for our patients. I emphasize arterial grafting, valve repair instead of replacement, and I subspecialize in mechanical replacement for the failing heart and lungs."
