Research Interests:
My major research interest is in the development of minimally invasive techniques of cardiac surgery. I am also interested in heart failure and methods to increase collateral blood vessel formation in ischemic myocardium.

I practice adult cardiac surgery and am a member of both the transplant team and the Adult Congenital Network in Toronto.
I am also a pacemaker implanter and a lead extraction expert.
