Sendhil Krishnan, MD, a board-certified interventional cardiologist at Wuesthoff Health System, will be approaching heart care from a different perspective by starting his own charity.
After participating in numerous medical mission trips throughout the US, Latin America and Asia over the past decade, Dr. Krishnan recently announced that he will be starting his own foundation and charity.
"My philosophy in life is to always stay grounded and not lose myself or my ideals. I feel strongly about giving back to those less fortunate, because honestly I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to be able to do what I am doing and I cannot think of any better way to give back then volunteering my time and my expertise," says Dr. Krishnan.
Dr. Krishnan states that his charity will be multi-faceted, "I am collaborating with an organization in India to provide healthcare, education, and more sustainable solutions for those in rural villages that have very limited access to healthcare," says Dr. Krishnan. "I hope to one day have set up my own medical health camps in both the US and abroad, and provide basic services to rural communities on an on-going basis." Additionally, he hopes to provide more advanced cardiac care by collaborating with colleagues at hospitals in various countries and donating pacemakers for implantation.
Dr. Krishnan has extensive cardiac care experience and specializes in handling coronary intervention (such as atherectomy, stenting and balloon angioplasty) as well as peripheral vascular intervention and pacemaker implantation. He recently relocated to the Space Coast from Missouri and is working to establish himself as one of the areas foremost cardiologists.
While Dr. Krishnan is preparing to launch his charity, he says his cardiac patients right here in Brevard County are his primary focus. "I want my patients to know that my top priority is providing the best care possible for them, and that starts by listening carefully to their issues and never minimizing problems."
