Cardiac surgery is without a doubt a complicated and worrisome endeavor for patients. My goal is to ease the stress of surgery by providing patients and their families with an efficient and informative plan of care that aligns with their therapeutic goals. I aim to deliver high quality care and continuously offer the community innovative treatment strategies. I view the practice of cardiothoracic surgery as a unique privilege to provide profound improvements in both the quality and duration of my patient’s lives. My special interests in general cardiac surgery include valvular and coronary artery disease, aortic aneurysm repair, as well as specialized focuses in atrial fibrillation / arrhythmia ablation and minimally invasive procedures.
