1 Patient Review for
Dr. Fukuhara

"Dr. Fukuhara is very kind and respectful. At our initial consultation, he was attentive and took the time to answer questions. The appointment was very unhurried. My surgery went very smoothly and without complications.

My incision is only 3 inches long and healed well. I did experience atrial fibrillation for 5 weeks after surgery but Dr. Fukuhara and is staff helped me through it and the Afib stopped after 5 weeks and has not reoccurred. I feel very lucky to have had my valve replacement performed by such a skilled surgeon and can definitely recommend him to others."
