Care Philosophy

I utilize a multidisciplinary approach to determine the least invasive procedure to solve complex conditions, while ensuring the best possible outcomes.  Pediatric cardiac surgery is really a team sport.  I work with cardiologists, anesthesiologists, intensive care specialists as well as an entire staff of Nurses and affiliated professionals that are all dedicated to the care of your child with congenital cardiac problems. The best outcomes are obtained by very experienced surgeons at centers that perform a large number of surgeries and the most complex surgeries. This is the Children's Hospital Colorado Heart Institute.
