    Meet our Experts - Dr. Kaushik Mandal

    Dr. Mandal is a cardiac surgeon whose primary clinical practice focuses on minimally techniques, keeping incisions and small and painless as possible.

    Healing the Heart at Johns Hopkins Medicine

    Johns Hopkins patient Paul Leitner-Wise discusses his minimally invasive mitral valve repair. Cardiac surgeon Dr. Kaushik Mandal talks about the procedure and discusses Leitner-Wise's case.

    Robotic Mitral Valve Repair Jim Watkins story

    Jim Watkins closely monitored his health after learning that he had a heart murmur and a leaky heart valve. After exploring his options at several hospitals, he chose to come to Johns Hopkins for a robotic mitral valve repair with Kaushik Mandal, M.D., a cardiac surgeon. He tells his story about the procedure, recovery and experience with The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
