About Roland A. Hernandez

Dr. Roland A. Hernandez is an adult cardiac surgeon practicing at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, WA. He specializes in routine and complex coronary artery revascularization, and minimally invasive approaches to the aortic valve and ascending aorta. His interests extend to care of heart conditions in the emergency setting including advanced cardiac support for heart failure. He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree at the University of Michigan Medical School where he discovered the love of cardiac surgery. He began his general surgery training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and is a graduate of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate. During his training he also completed a Master of Public Health from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He was selected to complete his cardiothoracic surgery training at the University of California, Los Angeles under the direction of Dr. Richard Shemin, an internationally renowned leader, expert and innovator in cardiac surgery. The recipient of many clinical and teaching awards, he values the evidence-based practice of surgery and open communication with patients to achieve their treatment goals. Having cared for his own parents through multiple major surgical procedures, he recognizes what it is like to be the loved one of a patient undergoing surgery. He views the practice of cardiac surgery not only as a privilege but also a high responsibility and is humbled to be a member of your care team. In his spare time, he enjoys making friends and family laugh, University of Michigan football, and smoking Central Texas style BBQ brisket.
