Dr. Fukuhara

"Very responsive, kind and polite manner, answers questions, patient. He’s very experienced and skilled in performing the Ross procedure. Excellent outcome, saved my life."

-- Mary Carter, Aortic Valve, Pulmonary Valve, Valve Repair, Valve Replacement, Median Sternotomy, Ross Procedure, 08/10/2021

"University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center staff as a whole was great. In the course 5 hours, Dr. Fukuhara removed my original valve and a faulty TVAR valve, did some repair work, and installed a new valve. Fourteen weeks later, I am on the long road to recovery but making progress. I have nothing but words to say about the whole process."
