Ramsay Nucho, M.D.

One of the proudest moments of my life was when I graduated from Loma Linda as a third generation Cardiothoracic Surgeon.  Since then my goal has been to bring the practice in Glendale Adventist and at the White Memorial to the cutting edge.  Using advanced techniques and tools including robotic surgery, thoracoscopy, newer anastomotic devices, and laser surgery, we strive for the best results for our patients.   The practice includes coronary bypass surgery, valve surgery, aortic aneurysm surgery and stenting, thoracic and esophageal surgery.  I have a special interest in carotid and aneurysm surgery and run a dedicated clinic to monitor these conditions in our patients.  My personal time is spent enjoying family, traveling when possible, woodworking and practicing some of my favorite piano pieces from the great composers.
