About Venkatraman Sadanand, MD, PhD, FACS, FRCSC, FAANS

Philosophy of Care

I believe that caring for someone must include not only treatment of diseases, and medical interventions, but taking all measures in patient education to prevent diseases.Spending time with patients and their families,and doing my best to enable the patient to get back to their normal lives is of the highest priority to me and my team. Hippocrates remarked, It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has. I believe it is even better to know well both the disease and the person. I have made an irrevocable commitment in my practice to treat every patient as my own kith and kin. I believe that healthcare is more than technical excellence. Great healthcare is the delivery of excellence combined with compassion, love and an approach to address the whole patient whose body, mind and soul present to the doctor. Only then does a doctor rise to become a healer, only then can we put back the care in \"Healthcare\". This is my commitment and my promise.
