About Me

I am a cardiac surgeon at Memorial Healthcare System. I care for adults with coronary artery disease, heart valvular disease, aortic disease, pulmonary hypertension and heart/lung failure. 

I specialize in heart valve repair or replacement through minimally invasive techniques and also perform a variety of procedures including coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), heart valve repair/reconstruction or replacement, aortic root replacements, aortic replacements, pulmonary thrombectomy and pulmonary thromboendarterectomy. I also perform heart transplantation and ventricular assist device implantation. 

The goal of my practice is to give my patients the best surgical repair and get them back to enjoying their life as soon as possible. I also perform surgical procedures aimed at getting people back on their feet faster by reducing (and in some cases, eliminating) post-operative pain, which results in shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times. 

I fell in love with cardiac surgery after seeing my first heart transplant in medical school. I became enamored by the complexity and intricacies of repairing the heart. After witnessing how dramatically cardiac surgery could transform a patient’s life – from shortness of breath at rest to running marathons – I knew my life’s purpose was to become a cardiac surgeon.

I enjoy creating strong partnerships with my patients. Open communication allows me to foster a deeper understanding of their concerns and aspirations for their future health. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing my patients live a healthier and happier life after surgery.

Research

My current clinical research interest is the use of cryoneurolysis for the reduction of pain after minimally invasive cardiac surgical procedures as well as traditional open cardiac surgical procedures. 

Previous research experience includes an American Heart Association Predoctoral Research Fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School where I spent two years bioengineering whole organs using patient-specific stem cells. One notable result of my fellowship was the first ever regeneration and transplantation of a bioengineered kidney. Read more here.
