I am an academic cardiac surgeon with private practice and administrative experience. I'm interested in all aspects of caring for children and adults with complex heart disease. My specialties include neonatal heart surgery, including small and premature babies; thoracic transplantation; ventricular assist devices; complex valve disease; adult congenital heart disease; diseases of the aorta, including connective tissue disorders such as Marfan's Syndrome; and cardiac intensive care.
