As a cardiologist, I treat patients will all types of heart conditions, from coronary disease to heart failure. In addition to a consultative practice, I perform advanced cardiac procedures including coronary angiography, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation.
I have a special interest in treating peripheral vascular disease, which refers to diseases of the arteries and periphery (outside the heart and brain). One common example is intermittent claudication (lower leg pain while walking that goes away during rest). When lifestyle changes and medications don’t resolve the problem, I use minimally invasive procedures, such as angioplasty and the placement of stents, to widen blocked arteries. I also treat chronic venous disorders such as varicose veins with a minimally invasive in-office procedure.
I believe in working closely with my patients to develop individualized treatment plans, using the latest technology to give my heart patients the best possible outcome.
