Roberto Lufschanowski, M.D.
A practicing cardiologist since 1960, Dr. Roberto Lufschanowski received both his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree and his graduate medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires. He subsequently completed medical training at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Chicago, IL, the VA Hospital in Washington, DC, and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease through the American Board of Internal Medicine and has special interests in Consultative Cardiology and Congenital Heart Disease in children and adults. Fluent in English, Spanish, Italian and French, Dr. Lufschanowski is on the teaching staff of the Texas Heart Institute Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship and is an editorial consultant for the Texas Heart Institute Journal and Clinical Professor of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.
When I came to Dr. Roberto Lufschanowski about 4 years ago I was a congestive heart failure patient who was unable to swim or workout. After his examination, he told me, "I can't get you back to where you were several years ago but I can certainly get you feeling a heck of a lot better than you do now."
Four years later at the age of 84, I'm swimming 8-10 laps twice a week in 24-30 minutes plus, walking on the days that I don't swim, 10 blocks in my neighborhood a minimum of 4-5 days a week in 21 minutes and enjoying life again. I attribute the incredible improvement in my health and ability to exercise to the medical care, attention, and advice that I have received from Dr. Roberto Lufschanowski.
