Specialties

Dr. Mark E Galantowicz has the following 3 specialties

  • Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular 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.

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

The Best Surgeon

Dr. Galantowicz is the best without a doubt. He also is one of the most kind and compassionate doctors we have ever met. Our newborn son had a heart defect. Dr. G did his open heart surgery to repair the TGA-d. Trust me when I say you cannot find a more caring and excellent dr. He was always honest, and we knew he had our son's best interest at heart. He was never arrogant or rude like most surgeons tend to be. He is the type of Dr. that would see you looking scared or upset as he was flying down the hall making rounds and he would stop and come give you a hug and just talk until you felt better. Super Dr and super man!

Caring and compassionate

When our son was diagnosed with a CGD at birth, we were terrified. Once we met Dr. Galantowicz, we knew we were in such great hands. He was so caring and compassionate. You can tell he loves what he does. When our son's surgery was complete, he came to the waiting room to talk to our family and hugged all of us. He is such a warm person and makes you feel like you are his priority.
