About Me

Care Philosophy
  • My philosophy on care is patient centered. The role of a cardiac surgeon is to provide options for advanced treatment of cardiac disease, being an excellent technical surgeon with exemplary outcomes. The decision of what treatment pathway is selected is totally in the hands of the patient and patient's family. My team strives to be easily accessible and responsive to patient question and concerns prior to surgery, during hospital stay and after discharge from the hospital. Cardiac surgery may be routine to the cardiac surgeon but is not routine to individual patient and facing the options of cardiac surgery can be daunting. I make every effort to ensure that the experience is exemplary from the patient's standpoint.
