    Personal profile

    Research interests

    I am internventional cardiologist with a strong interest in valvular heart disease and catheter based therapies for these problems. I encounter patients in a specialized valve clinic that where patients with complex valvular disease are evaluated for the best treatment option available (surgical vs. catheter based vs. medical therapy). I actively participate in an FDA sponsored trial that evaluates the role of transcatheter aortic valve implantation in patients with severe aortic stenosis who have an elevated surgical risk. In addition I am interested in the development of aortic stenosis and the potential genetic components of this disease.

    Areas of Clinical Interest

    Clinical cardiology, diagnostic cardiac catheterization, coronary angiography, peripheral and coronary vascular intervention, ASD/PFO closure, transthoracic echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, intracardiac echocardiography, stress echocardiography, cardiac MRI, valvular heart disease
