About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

Growing up in a blue-collar family I enjoyed the ability to repair, create and change things with my hands and experience. I grew up witnessing the pride and accomplishment that comes from developing your own craft. My father was the best welder and blacksmith in our town and always encouraged me to learn a craft. He said to me: “I don’t care which career you’ll eventually choose as long as you put all your heart in it!” Heart and vascular surgery was the craft I chose for my life. I feel gratified and honored by the trust of my patients and my ability to help them restore the quality of life


What I want my patients to know about me:

I dedicated my career to the development of bloodless and minimally invasive techniques to improve my patients' surgical healing and overall experience. These new techniques allow most surgical patients to enjoy a quick recovery and a happy and uneventful return to their lives and families. In most women the surgical scar can be completely hidden in the skin fold underneath the breast. Most patients enjoy a quicker recovery and return to normal daily activities, less chances of infection or bleeding and much better cosmetic results.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities with my friends and family. That gives me a healthy balance in a profession that requires countless hours of indoor activity. I spend as much time as I can with my wife, my son and my daughter. I am an avid skier, hiker and snowboarder during the snow season and travel out west to the Mountain regions when my schedule allows it. When ice and snow are gone I ride my motorcycle or my bicycle. I also truly enjoy cooking and experimenting on new recipes.
