Philosophy of Care
“I believe new technology continues to expand the ‘realm of the possible’ in cardiac surgery. As an
advanced heart failure surgeon, I realize how incredibly well mechanical device technology works to
support the human body. Moreover, surgical robot technology encourages us to move to the next
stage of heart surgery. It is very rewarding to see how these technological advances improve the lives
of our patients.”
