      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. Schubach's Care Philosophy

      As a cardiac surgeon, I feel that it is mandatory to keep abreast of the latest techniques and technology. However, more importantly, each patient must be treated as an individual and not just a person with a cardiac issue. The success of treatment depends not only on the technical outcome, but also on the general state of well-being of the patient and the family. It is, therefore, the physician?s responsibility to focus not only on the specific disease process, but to care for the entire patient and acknowledge the patient?s family and social situation.
