I am a congenital cardiac surgeon who cares for neonates, infants, children and adults born with congenital heart disease. I perform a wide spectrum of surgeries for congenital heart defects. My goal is to provide innovative and "cutting edge" cardiac surgical care in an ethical, compassionate, and family-centric fashion. I am actively involved in all aspects of congenital heart surgery with special emphasis on complete neonatal repairs and cardiac critical care. In addition, I have an active research program with two main goals. The first is to understand the role of prematurity in myocardial recovery after heart surgery. The second focus is working with a multidisciplinary team to develop new and innovative devices to improve care of infants and children with heart disease. I am currently funded by the NIH, B-BIC and the Boston Children's Hospital Innovestment Grant. I have a special interest in the education and training of residents and fellows. I have had the privilege of being part of the Thoracic Surgery resident workforce at the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. In this capacity, I helped with administering the scholarship program of the STS for residents and medical students. As a congenital cardiac surgeon, I interact and teach house-staff from various sub-specialties such as congenital cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, pediatric cardiology, pediatrics, and pediatric critical care.
