Why did you choose cardiothoracic surgery?
I chose this field because it brings me joy to help people get better and I am challenged to use science and surgery to heal them.
What do cardiothoracic surgeons do?
I perform surgeries on the heart and lungs for patients with cancer, heart valve disease, coronary artery disease and lung disease. I am certified with the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery.
What are your hobbies?
When I am not caring for patients, you can find me taking RV trips and hiking in the Rockies with my wife and family. I enjoy working out and jogging and also play the piano and violin.
