      Dr. Bohuta performed open heart surgery to repairs several heart defects on our son when he was just one week old. Before we were SCH patients he even took the time to meet with us via video conference to discuss the surgery and possible procedures in detail and answered every question we had. We believe due to his skill and the Grace of God our baby’s surgery went extremely well and he recovered so much quicker than we had anticipated. It’s hard to believe without the operation he wouldn’t be with us today. Our family is eternally grateful to Dr. Bohuta and the entire heart team for giving our son a fighting chance.
