Get to Know Me
What are some of the specific conditions you treat?
Cardiac arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia.
Some of the techniques I use are catheter ablation for arrhythmia, cryoballoon atrial fibrillation ablation technique, stereotaxis (remote navigation) ablation technique, pacemaker implantation, ICD implantation, laser lead extraction, loop recorder implantation, cardioversion, lariat left atrial appendage ligation.
What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
I treat my patients as I would like to be treated. I spend the necessary time to make patients understand the disease they suffer from, the rationale for treatment of the conditions and different treatment approaches.
I am part of a team with high values and quality standards. We use a team approach for most procedures in an effort to maximize the outcomes and reduce complications.
What inspired you to become a doctor?
During my first contact with a medical environment, a fractured leg while in high school, I was impressed by the dedication of the physicians and the empathy of the nurses. I was touched by the pain of the sick people. I wanted to help and make a difference in the lives of others.
