A Message To Our Patients

It has been nearly 10 years since I accepted my first academic faculty position at Yale University School of Medicine and now it gives me great pride to head up the world-class Section of Cardiac Surgery at Yale as Interim Chief. I am honored to lead of one of the largest adult and pediatric cardiovascular surgery sections in the nation. Our team offers the latest cardiovascular technologies and techniques, engages in innovative, world-renowned research and clinical trials, and practices a deeply compassionate approach to cardiac care.

The Cardiac Surgery team knows that you and your loved ones put your trust in us, fully and completely, and we are honored to live up to the task of providing you with the finest, most compassionate cardiovascular care. Our focus on innovation and research allows us to use the most advanced technologies to provide patients with smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, and less postoperative discomfort, whenever possible. We understand that the prospect of undergoing cardiac surgery is difficult. To that end, we passionately commit ourselves to excellence to ensure that you receive the best care possible; and we dedicate ourselves to providing you with ample communication to help take the fear and confusion out of your experience.
