Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ghanta "Living with cardiovascular disease and facing the possibility of major surgery can be very difficult. No one wants to have heart surgery, but surgery can provide dramatic benefits for the appropriate patients. I approach each patient with the same care and dedication I would want my family to receive. This includes taking the time to carefully explain the risks and benefits of surgery, communicating information to family and primary physicians, and close follow-up until recovery after surgery."
