My Practice

I have a mixed cardiac and thoracic surgical practice.

In cardiac surgery, I have developed special interest in aortic surgery but i still perform general cardiac procedures including off pump cardiac surgery. I also perform mitral and aortic valve surgery.

In thoracic surgery, I have considerable experience in the management of lung , pleural and mediastinal surgical diseases. I have developed special interest in minimal invasive approaches including video assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) procedures and VATS lobectomy.
