About

Bio

I am a pediatrician specialized in pediatric cardiology and pediatric critical care. I have been director of an interventional cath lab since 2001 and section chief since 2006. My research focus is the development of new interventional techniques and the development of biodegradsble implants.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
