Dr. Michael Braudo
Bequest benefits tiniest patients
With a bequest in his will, Dr. Michael Braudo is continuing to care for the tiny patients who were his life’s work.
Dr. Braudo’s association with Mount Sinai began in the late 1950s. He studied medicine in Johannesburg, South Africa, and completed further training in Edinburgh, Scotland, before becoming Chief Resident in Medicine at Children’s Medical Center in Boston. When he landed in Toronto in 1958, it was to stay: he lived here until his death in April of 2008.
As a paediatrician with a specialty in clinical paediatric cardiology, Dr. Braudo cared for the tiniest, most vulnerable patients - and their parents.
“He had a lovely, calm way of speaking with his patients’ parents,” recalls his niece, Patricia Braudo. “He would answer all their questions and explain things to them very carefully, making sure they understood.”
Patients and their families appreciated Dr. Braudo’s warmth and dedication, and they responded with letters of thanks and invitations to their weddings and anniversaries.
Now, Dr. Braudo’s dedication to his patients continues thanks to his gift, which has established a fund for neonatology research.
