Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jayasankar "My interests include minimally invasive cardiac and thoracic surgery, complex mitral valve repair, redo- cardiac surgery, and aortic aneurysm disease. I am dedicated to innovative and advanced techniques in both cardiovascular and thoracic surgery. My approach to minimally invasive surgery allows patients to recover more quickly and with few complications compared to those with traditional more invasive approaches. I am committed to the highest quality of surgical care by implementing advanced techniques with excellence."

What People Say About Dr. Vasant Jayasankar, MD
Reply
Never looked me in the eye. Was preoccupied with cellphone and people knocking on door. We did not trust him and went elsewhere and had excellent outcome. I do not recommend Dr J. Level of trust is negative zero.
