Dr. Badwhar performed Mitral Valve repair last year on my mitral valve. I could not have been happier with the care and the operation I received last year. Everyone was great. Dr. Badwhar explained everything to me very well and I had extreme confidence in his ability. The entire staff at UPMC was great during and after my surgery.

First visit, have confidence in Dr. Badhwar's ability to diagnose and correct my heart valve problem.

Dr. Badhwar saved my life...literally. He performed emergency open heart surgery. I flat lined on the table because of a very sick heart and Dr. Badhwar worked a miracle to allow me to be sitting here today completing a survey less than 5 weeks from the August 21 surgery date.
