Dr. Michael H. Dang will become Maui Memorial Medical Center's newest heart surgeon this Feb. 14. Dang currently works at the Queen's Medical Center on O'ahu.
Dang was born in Honolulu and acquired his medical degree at the University of Colorado after graduating from University of Hawai'i-Manoa.
Dang has also served as the chief of surgery and chief of thoracic and cardiovascular surgery at the Queen's Medical Center. He is also a veteran of the Vietnam War.
"We are truly fortunate to have Dr. Dang join MMMC as our new cardiac surgeon," said Wesley Lo, Maui Memorial chief executive officer. "He has been one of Hawai'i's most prominent and well-known cardiothoracic surgeons for the past 32 years. Not only does he bring an enormous amount of expertise in his field, but his local roots bring a deep understanding and appreciation for our unique local culture."
Dang will replace Dr. Richard "Pat" Cochran, who left in November.
