AUGUST 2013 EVH Customer of the Month

Robert Hsu MPAS PA-C and Sang Lee, M.D..

Robert Hsu, MPAS PA-C graduated from the Oregon Health and Science University School of Medicine in 2006 earning a Master’s Degree in Advanced Physician Assistant Studies.  Prior to that, Rob had earned a Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley.


It was as the Chief Physician Assistant in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Washington Hospital in Fremont, CA that Rob and his mentor—Dr. Sang Lee, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery—began working together.  In addition to sharing the primary goal of providing optimal patient care, Dr. Lee and Rob also share an interest in innovation and technological advancement, leading to Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting (EVH) and the Heartstring Proximal Seal technologies to become prominent in their practice. 


Rob perfected his EVH skills with each new generation of the VASOVIEW EVH system, culminating in his current use of the HEMOPRO 2 technology. His interest in the evolution and progression of EVH procedure and the outcomes it provides for their patients is intense – so much so, that he became a valuable resource for the MAQUET R&D teams.  Rob’s commitment to providing Dr. Lee with the highest quality conduit is further demonstrated by his use of the VASOSHIELD Pressure Controlling Syringe.  In October of 2006, Rob was inducted into the EVH Leadership Circle—a distinguished group of Physician Assistants who have made significant contributions to the advancement of EVH procedures and improved patient care. 


The synergy that exists between Dr. Lee and Rob Hsu PA-C continues to be a hallmark of their practice – a fact that is obvious to everyone who works in those hospitals. Their degree of dedication and their pursuit of innovative technology not only define the quality of care that they deliver to their patients, but also serve as a model of effective teamwork for healthcare providers.
