Personal Statement

The care of the child with congenital heart disease is a privilege and honor. I work together with our Anesthesia, Intensive Care, Cardiology and Nursing colleagues to provide world class care to our patients. Our patient’s become part of our growing family and as a surgeon, I value the relentless attention to detail both during our patient’s surgical procedure and postoperative recovery.

Clinical Interests:

Newborn congenital cardiac surgery

Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia with Major Aortopulmonary Collaterals (MAPCAS)

Off Bypass Aortic Arch repair on premature, low birthweight neonates

Research Interests:

Computational modeling of Congenital Heart Disease

Skill Acquisition in Cardiac Surgery


Organization NameRole
American Heart AssociationMember
The Society of Thoracic SurgeonsMember
Western Thoracic Surgical AssociationMember
