Patient care is all in the details, according to Dr. Laham. Attending to the details leads to the best outcomes, he believes, and he prides himself on treating every patient as if they are his own parents.
Dr. Laham has been involved in leading research on the national and international stages and he appreciates working at OSF HealthCare, which is nationally recognized for cutting-edge, high-quality heart health care.
“I appreciate the chance to work on advancing breakthroughs in heart care technology,” he said.
Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Dr. Laham has known what he wanted to do with his life from an early age.
“From the time I was 10 years old, I knew I was going to be a heart doctor,” he said. “After reading stories of heart surgery pioneers I knew this would be my calling.”
He is a father of two and in his free time he enjoys ballroom dancing, playing saxophone and piano in a jazz and blues band and collecting model trains.
