About Dr. Danny Ramzy,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Danny Ramzy and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from McMaster University in 2000. To date, I have performed approximately 3,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 1,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my experience in all types of cardiac surgery. I believe that minimally invasive and robotic procedures make it possible for patients to have heart surgery with smaller incisions in the side of the chest. This means that patients have less discomfort and shorter recovery times.
I can use minimally invasive surgeries for heart valves, bypasses, and procedures that help the heart beat normally. When minimally invasive surgeries are not possible, I can use traditional heart surgery approaches. Given my broad range of surgical skills, I enjoy helping patients that need complex surgeries which other hospitals may reject.
For my patients, I do my best to make them feel like family. I believe in treating the patient – not just the disease. In addition to my medical degree, I also earned a PhD which helps me serve as a leading researcher and educator of other doctors. My hope is that the entire medical community can benefit from the advances in surgery that our team is developing.
