Dr. Pramod Bonde is a Board Certified Cardiac Surgeon. He is dedicated to improving the quality and longevity of his patients afflicted with heart disease. In his eyes, you are not a patient but a person who deserves to be treated with compassion and dignity to facilitate a return to your family to spend a meaningful and happy life following heart surgery.

Dr. Bonde was greatly influenced by the loss of a dear one to the sufferings of heart failure; it was a turning point in his formative years as a young surgeon that made him pursue heart surgery. His desire to help and heal is driven by that quest so that no other human being has to suffer the debilitating effects of heart disease.

Dr. Bonde is passionate about the treatment of men and women limited by angina and shortness of breath due to coronary artery disease or valve disease and those with end stages of heart failure. He specializes in coronary bypass, valve repair/replacements, and treatment of aortic diseases. His special focus is on heart transplantation and artificial heart pump therapy for people waiting for heart transplant and for those who are not transplant candidates.
