About

Professional Statement

My passion is the field of structural heart disease. This new and rising field is an innovative way to approach complex heart and valve disease patients without open heart surgery. Whether you have aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, atrial fibrillation, a prior heart valve that now needs replacement or more - this century has possibilities that were not available even as recently as five years ago. I trained in the US as well as abroad, and my goal is to bring you the best in worldwide care right at your doorstep. Sometimes problems that others have told you are too risky to treat may be worthwhile to review and give a team-oriented opinion. Our goal is your safety and quality of life, and we want to not just add years to your life but life to your years. You are important to me - not just for who you are and what you have done, but also for what you plan to do. Not just today, but tomorrow, but for the future after that.
