      Collapse Overview 
      Collapse Overview
      I am a fellowship-trained cardiothoracic anesthesiologist working primarily at the Parnassus campus but also providing care in the Mount Zion and Mission Bay operating rooms. Approximately half of my practice involves providing care to patients undergoing cardiac and thoracic surgical procedures and includes patients undergoing heart or lung transplantation and/or requiring advanced life support including VADs, ECMO, and ECLS. I also provide anesthesia support for complex percutaneous cardiac interventions including TAVRs and other percutaneous structural heart interventions. The other half of my practice is as a general anesthesiologist caring for the complex patients typically seen at our quaternary care facility. As a diplomate of Perioperative Tranesophageal Echocardiography, I am certified to provide this advanced form of monitoring to patients undergoing cardiac and non-cardiac surgical procedures and in intraoperative emergencies.
