Philosophy of Care
Cardiothoracic surgery is best characterized as a team sport. The best outcomes can only be achieved through the collaboration of individuals with the appropriate clinical skills and mindset.
We are fortunate to have a team that is both experienced and enormously dedicated to providing the absolute highest level of care - not just from a medical-surgical standpoint, but also from one of providing service to the patient. We rigorously examine our outcomes and are constantly involved in quality improvement processes at all hospitals that we operate.
We constantly strive to provide prompt and clear communication with our patients throughout the entire arc of care including preoperative planning, surgery, post-operative recovery and follow up.
We realize that the prospect of having surgery can be quite stressful. Our hope is that by providing sound information and the undivided commitment of our surgical team members, we can provide reassurance to the patient and family members during this experience.
