I consult with patients in the office with a heart model and spend time educating patients about their condition and the proposed operations. This tool has been helpful as well as showing patients all the x-ray images to provide a clear understanding of what is involved in their operation.
I have 34 years of experience as a cardiothoracic surgeon. I am a Professor of Surgery in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery. I am skilled in all aspects of adult cardiac surgery including bypass surgery, aneurysm surgery as well as valve surgery. In addition, I have a special interest in surgery for advanced heart failure. I also operate in Florence Alabama and that practice includes the above and all aspects of lung surgery.
