Specialties

Dr. Sitaram M Emani has the following 2 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.

alias~Dr. McGuyver

Dr. Emani has performed 3 open heart surgeries for our son. HLHS is complex to say the least. To him it is the every day. We never realized other centers did not have experience in valvuloplasty (sp?) just another part of the procedure needing to be done. When he came out and said the transplant word to us, we knew there was no need to look for a second opinion, it was truth. I would not go anywhere else for open heart surgery on a child. Dr. Emani understood our concerns when others did not. If our child was not going to live we did not want heroic measures and he was very respectful of our wishes and understood that it was a thought out, painful decision. Really would like to give him many more stars than this rating will allow, he is amazing!

Happy Mom

Dr. Emani did a 9 hour surgery on my son to replace and fix 3 valves in my son's heart. He was so amazing. Answered all my questions the day before and came by before the surgery to check on us. He came by every day after the surgery until we were discharged. He is so nice and can easily explain the complex procedures he performs on your child. He has one of the best bed side manners I've ever seen for a doctor. But above all his skill is superior. My son is 2 months post suregry and doing great.

Very Happy

My son has had two open heart surgeries to fix the left side of his heart, both performed by Dr. Emani. At home in New York State, they felt that the left side of his heart wasnt worth saving. Dr. Emani not only felt it was worth saving, he did. Not only is he a great doctor, he is a great person. He stopped in to check on my son at least once a day, told me to contact him if I had any questions at all, genuinely seemed concerned and unlike another surgeon we are familiar with he doesnt have a god persona (who though everyone else was below him). You can really talk to Dr. Emani. Very happy in all aspects with him.

Dr Emani saved my newborn and he did not leave her side until she was as good as he could get her. 21 Hours he spent with my baby girl Reese and I saw Dr Emani everyday after the surgery. He has billion dollar hands and I caould not have been happier that Reese not only made it but is doing very well.. Good work Dr. Emani
