Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am interested in cardiovascular clinical research, including comparative effectiveness, quality improvement, clinical trials and database/registry work. My areas of expertise include surgical quality improvement, enhanced recovery protocols, comparative effectiveness in cardiovascular disease, best practices in cardiac surgical perioperative care, vein graft preservation, endovascular and minimally invasive treatments for structural heart disease and the thoracic aorta, and treatment options in coronary heart disease. I am interested in the study of innovative treatments and diagnostics for heart patients. I present and publish research at national and international forums on these topics. My goal in this work is to promote the well-being of my patients and all heart patients through continuous quality improvement and enhancing recovery after cardiac surgery.
