      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Krishnan's Care Philosophy

      In medicine there are a lot of conditions and a lot of advancements that have been made with medicines and treatments that are just treating the problem. Whereas in cardiac electrophysiology, many of the conditions that we treat such as arrhythmias, tachycardias, we can actually cure them of their problems, and when they are done with us we can legitimately say that your problem is gone. And so that's part of the allure for me of being an electrophysiologist is that for many of my patients, I have something that I can legitimately say will fix their problem, not just treat it for the rest of their life. I want to be pushing forward the limits of our field and keeping up with the advances in technology but also never forgetting that on the other end of that catheter or the other end of that scalpel is a patient - somebody's mother, somebody's father or brother or sister. And that no matter how much technology we have at our disposal, that it's still a human-to-human interaction, and that there's a person there. And that's what I never want to lose track of.
