He then completed his cardiothoracic surgery training at the University of Minnesota/ Lillehei Heart Institute, the birthplace of modern cardiac surgery. Dr. Setty went on to do his congenital cardiac surgery fellowship at the renowned Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia and spent a year at Green Lane Hospital in New Zealand as a pediatric and adult cardiac surgery fellow.

Above all, Dr. Setty’s primary interest is in providing the highest level of individualized care for each one of his patients. This also includes his humanitarian visits to underserved areas around the world. Dr. Setty has traveled to many countries including India, Philippines, Fiji and Haiti collectively over twenty times where he led teams to perform and teach life-saving congenital heart surgeries on young patients who otherwise would not have had the chance to live.
