A Message To Our Patients


It is with great enthusiasm that I have joined the world-class Yale School of Medicine Department of Surgery - Cardiac.  Although already recognized for clinical excellence, it is my singular mission to propel our program to new heights through the introduction of new, leading-edge surgical therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and to create a patient-centered approach towards cardiac care. We offer a full range of cardiac operations for coronary artery disease, valve disease, aortic disease, heart failure, and arrhythmias, including the latest in minimally-invasive technologies.

It is a rare patient who looks forward to having cardiac surgery. The Yale Cardiac Surgical team understands this and will provide personalized, compassionate care to take the uncertainty, anxiety, and fear out of your experience. Despite having been in clinical practice for over a decade, I am still awe-struck at the courage displayed by my patients as they anticipate and ultimately move through the operating room doors and entrust their lives and future to us. Ensuring the best possible experience during this difficult time is our highest responsibility and our reward lies in knowing that we have played a role in improving our patients’ lives.

On behalf of the Yale Cardiac Surgical Team, I thank you for visiting our website and invite you learn more about our services.

Sincerely,
