I am a board certified cardiac surgeon who has spent the last 16 years in the Mount Sinai Healthcare System in New York City. One of the highlights of my career has been my training under and later working alongside Dr. Randall Griepp at the Mount Sinai Hospital. My area of interest has been aortic valve disorders, thoracic aortic aneurysms, aortic dissections and patients with connective tissue disorders. In addition, I have had the pleasure of caring for patients with coronary artery disease and valve disorders. I am a member of the American Association of Thoracic Surgery and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons as well as other national and international surgical societies.
