I am a cardiothoracic surgeon, my practice is mixed. In cardiac surgery I have a special interest in aortic surgery, minimally invasive aortic surgery, I also perform the general cardiac operations ( CABG, OPCAB and valve surgery). In thoracic surgery, I deal with chest wall, lung, pleural and mediastinal surgical diseases. I have special interest in the minimally invasive approach (video assisted thoracoscopic procedures-VATS lobectomy) and fractured ribs fixation. I am interested in research; my qualification is a Medical Doctorate M.D. from Manchester University in 2007. My thesis was based on inflammatory response to the use of cardiopulmonary bypass in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. This response was linked to certain genotypes of a certain polymorphisms. My current affiliation is with the University of Salford, I am collaborating with researchers studying the myocardial cell dysfunction, the inflammatory response and its effect on the conduits that used in cardiac surgery.Recently I was appointed as a professor (Hon)@ the University of Salford.
Mr Bittar performed key hole surgery on my lung, I was petrified but there was no need as I was in very good hands, there was very little pain, I was home after 2 days and the scars are very neat.
On the 28th March 2019 I came into Blackpool Victoria hospital for major surgery I was under Prof. M N Bittar and his medical team . I could not have been better lucked after and cared for.My operation was a success and the after care treatment is going well. I am greatful to Prof.Bittar and his team and could not have wished for better result.THANKYOU TO PROF.BITTAR AND HIS STAFF.
