Clinical Interests

My clinical interests lies within the field of interventional cardiology;performing complex diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterizations in lieu of open heart surgery or as an adjunct to surgical procedures. Our Center has performed over 150 cases of transcatheter Melody valve since 2010 and thus has become one of the more experienced centers in the midwest. I have also been involved in multiple device related multicenter projects which has brought in new valve technology to our program. I am also involved in the management of patients with Williams Syndrome as a part of the Williams Center. Our referral basis has extended through the midwest and the south and thus has increased our patient population. We often have visits for second opinion from patients with Williams Syndrome with regards to interventional procedure.
