As a cardiothoracic surgeon, I see minimally invasive (MIV) techniques having the most impact in the near future. I will offer several MIV approaches to cardiac and thoracic surgery enabling patients the opportunity to get back to a normal lifestyle sooner. That being said, not everyone is a good candidate for these procedures. It’s all about choosing the right operation for the right patient, and my experience and training allows me to make those choices effectively. The goal for any intervention is to provide the best long term results for a lifetime of good health.

This is my first visit with Dr Zakow. He made me feel relaxed and welcome to be there. Also I was told by others who had the same surgery, that I was In good hands. I'm reluctant to say their names but It was all good.
