Dr C.S Hiremath

Dear fellow members,

Greetings to you all! The association has a newly elected executive committee in place, one that is experienced, optimistic & futuristic!

I express my profound gratitude to you, for placing your faith in me to serve the association & each one of you who are the soldiers of this army, dedicated to the progress & practice of cardiothoracic surgeons. It is indeed a privilege to collectively work with each member on the board, for one could not ask for a better team comprising of both experience with time & youthful energy, for our march ahead.

In a mercurial atmosphere, with constant challenges & threats to our practice, from the reaction involving rising patient expectation, drifting technology, deficits in training practice, impedance between disciplines, unstructured healthcare & ethical practice; we need to collectively resolve issues in the interest of the patient & prudence.

I can assure you that this team, is well cognizant of the challenges we face. However, breaking the glass ceiling demands the constant support & involvement of all members for effective reverberating .

Dr. Rajan Sethuratnam and his team over the last six years have done incredulous work and have raised the bar higher. I am indeed grateful to him for the constant support through this transition. I am optimistic & full of energy for the long jump that I assure you will take us to better heights!

Let us join hands & anastomose open ends together to make cardiothoracic service to the society, as effective & progressive as it should be by setting an example of achieving the impossible!

I look forward to a more meaningful & productive expedition. Welcome aboard!

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. C.S Hiremath


Indian Association of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons
