- Clinical interest for patients
My clinical focus is on diseases of the aorta from the aortic valve down through the abdomen. I am aggressive with the treatment of aneurysm disease and have the skills to tailor every patients' care for the best outcome including both traditional approaches and stents.
Some of my specialty areas include coronary artery bypass grafting, mitral valve repair, arrythmia surgery, aortic valve repair, aortic stent grafting, aortic aneurysms, root aneurysms, ascending aortic aneurysms, aortic arch aneurysms, hybrid aortic procedures, and hypothermic circulatory arrest.
