Philosophy of Care Each patient has different needs. I tailor care to each patient, given their health status, functional status and goals of care, and I do so both effectively and ethically.
Dr. Hasanadka grew up in Indiana, but he feels at home in Champaign-Urbana because it is a great place to raise a family, where the university brings a lot of diversity and opportunity to town.
Achieving great patient outcomes is important to Dr. Hasanadka, which aligns with the priorities of OSF HealthCare, and he appreciates that OSF Heart of Mary Medical Center And OSF Sacred Heart Medical Center provide state-of-the-art care with a personal touch.
When treating patients, Dr. Hasanadka takes the time to listen and communicate. Even if it means an appointment runs over the scheduled time, he believes it is important to help every patient understand what is going on and what the plan is for treatment.
Dr. Hasanadka chose to pursue vascular surgery as his specialty because the ever-evolving technology provides several tools to meet every patient’s unique needs.
“There are several open surgery techniques, as well as minimally invasive endovascular options such as ballooning and stenting. Then there are hybrid approaches where you can combine the two,” Dr. Hasanadka said. “This allows me to tailor the treatment to the patient, and it is also what keeps it interesting.”
