I am a middle-aged surgeon trained in cardiac, pulmonary, esophageal and vascular surgery. Since 1996, I have been actively involved in developing equipment and using new techniques to allow most heart bypass operations to be performed without stopping the heart (cardiopulmonary bypass). I enjoy meeting, advising and caring for patients in my fields of expertise.
