Care Philosophy

I help patients with acquired heart diseases such as coronary artery blockages and heart valve problems. I use surgical procedures when necessary. Each patient is special in his or her own way and I will work with the cardiologists to provide the best care possible in each situation. In particular I am happy to discuss the possibility of providing patients with less-invasive ways of undergoing heart bypass surgery (for example minimally invasive coronary artery bypass graft) whenever appropriate. I have been in North Carolina for more than 25 years and I received all of my medical and surgical training at Duke.
