Hassan K. Reda, MD


My name is Hassan Reda; I received my medical degree from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon. I completed general surgery training at The State University of New York, at Stony Brook. Then I went on to complete a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery which I finished in 2002. Since then I have been performing complex cardiac surgeries including coronary bypass, valvular, and aortic aneurysm.
