In This episode, Dr. Gary Sherman welcomes Dr. Anu Lala to our conversation. Dr. Lala’s clinical interests encompass all aspects of management of heart failure, including the selection and care of patients with mechanical circulatory support devices and heart transplantation as well as genetic cardiomyopathies -and- perioperative management of high-risk cardiac surgical cases. She believes in a patient-centered approach, where each individual’s unique needs and preferences are essential components of developing a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Lala seeks to implement -guideline-directed -medical and device-based therapies while integrating emotional and spiritual aspects of care. (This is right up my alley)
