My Passion for Healthcare

My passion for medicine and surgery started evolving during high school and never stopped. During my military service I was exposed to the importance and necessity of surgical expertise in taking care of pediatric trauma patients. That pushed me further to start medical school after concluding my service. My main area of interest is pediatrics surgery and cardiac surgery in specific. I was lucky enough to have the support of great mentors throughout my medical studies and residency. All to made it possible for me to become a congenital cardiothoracic surgeon.

My Clinical Focus

I have been training and practicing surgery for the past 12 years. My main area of focus is congenital heart surgery and I have been lucky enough to get to train in some of the most prestigious programs in the world, including Texas Childrens Hospital (Houston, TX) and Emory University (Atlanta, GA). I developed special interest in adult congenital heart surgery as well aortic root and aortic valve surgery. As the congenital patient population grows and ages, these are becoming significant and challenging group of patients who are mostly underserved in many areas of the world.
