Personal Bio: 

Dr. Blakeman spent 19 years as an academic surgeon. He rose quickly to full professor because of strong academic interests and ground breaking surgery in the Midwest. He has personally published nearly 70 articles and papers, and participated in 13 clinical studies. He is also a member of the American Association of Thoracic Surgery – the most prestigious clinical and academic thoracic society in the world. In midcareer Dr. Blakeman decided to pursue private practice to extend high risk heart surgery to the community setting. Now every case short of heart transplant can remain in the comfort and efficiency of the local hospitals of northwest Indiana and the south side of Chicago. Attention to care, quality and efficiency has allowed his personal care team and hospitals to surpass national standards for outcomes every year for the past 10 years and counting. Dr. Blakeman’s personal interests include golf and an extensive personal training program to maintain health and weight control.
