Specialties

Dr. Daniel H Drake has the following 3 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

If I needed surgery again, I would definitely try to have Dr. Drake again. He provided open heart surgery followed by surgery for a pulmonary embolism. I got through it just fine. I am very happy with Munson Hospital and staff also.

Dr. Daniel Drake is amazing cardiac surgeon!!!

Dr. Drake spent 30 min on the phone before I was even his patient. He spent 2 hours with us for our consultation. He is very personable, thorough, gives you all the data and huis success rates. He studied under Dr. carpentier, in France, who designed the valve ring and procedure used by surgeons all over the world. When he did my valve repair, I was his only operation that day. He gave me great confidence, and my repair was perfect, no leakage at all. My scar is minimal and I am very happy with it. I had a sternitomy, as I am only 56 and he said this would give me the most durable repair possible, lasting a long life-time. I was in hospital 7 days, and have minimal pain, went home on Norco, have slept great. I had it done at Munson Hospital, which I very highly recommend as well.
