WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am enthusiastic about heart disease and the variety of surgical options currently available. At Duke, I am able to work closely with other heart doctors to treat complicated coronary vascular disease and valve disease, particularly in patients with other co-morbidities. I live in Durham with my husband and two children.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests include coronary vascular disease and valve disease. I study large datasets of cardiac surgical patients at the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) to improve our understanding and treatment of such diseases. I am particularly interested in coronary vascular disease and valve disease in women, which is notoriously underdiagnosed.
