Patient Care Setting



“Congenital heart disease can be extremely trying for patients and their families. As a physician and father, it is my personal goal to provide them with direct, empathetic and personalized care.”

Areas of Expertise

• Pediatric and congenital cardiac surgery
• Adult congenital cardiac surgery
• Heart transplant and mechanical support
• Aortic and valve surgery

I chose this field to provide a service to children with congenital cardiac disease so that they may live a meaningful life; and to advance the field of congenital cardiac surgery through surgical innovation and research.

As a pediatric cardiac surgeon, I treat an entire spectrum of cardiac conditions in neonates and adults. These include pediatric and adult congenital heart disease, aortic and pulmonary artery disease and valve disease, as well as heart failure, mechanical support and heart transplants.

To best serve my diverse patient base, I am fluent in English, Arabic and Spanish and have a working knowledge of French.
