About Me

As an adult cardiac surgeon, I treat a wide range of conditions including coronary artery disease, valve disease, aortic disease, cardiomyopathy and heart aneurysms. I perform all types of cardiac operations, including valve repair or replacement, bypass surgery, heart transplant, ventricular assist device implantation and aortic reconstructions. When possible, I employ minimally invasive approaches to facilitate my patients’ recovery, and also use transcatheter approaches when appropriate. I believe in providing patients with individualized care, tailored specifically to their unique needs and goals, and encourage my patients to actively involve themselves in their care to improve their health and well-being.

My favorite part about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the distinguishing character of our faculty and staff. I am proud to work with such a cooperative and resourceful group of individuals who are committed to our patients and families.

In my free time I enjoy photography and spending time with my family.
