About Our Director
Konstantine Tzimas MD
Dr. Konstantine Tzimas, Anesthesiology Cardiothoracic Fellowship Director originally joined the faculty as Assistant Professor in December 2012. Since joining the faculty, he has been a strength to the cardiac anesthesia division, providing excellent care for complicated and often unstable patients. Although our cardiac division is all well trained and experienced in transesophageal echocardiography, Dr. Tzimas has developed an expertise in echocardiography. Through his knowledge and skills, he continually improves the training experience of our fellows in cardiac anesthesia. As a result of his innate abilities and invaluable training he provides a wealth of knowledge in many ways to the Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology fellowship.
