I care for patients with all forms of heart disease who require surgery, as well as for patients with chest disease, including lung cancer. My special interests are in aortic surgery, including the use of minimally invasive endovascular stenting for thoracic aortic aneurysms. I also use leading-edge technology to treat severe heart failure, including the new permanent ventricular assist device (VAD) that provides “destination therapy” (our VAD program, which I co-direct, is the first and only program on Long Island to achieve national accreditation). I know how to address the unique cardiac needs of women, and am active in the Women’s Heart Program. I am also on the team of the Lung Cancer Evaluation Center that uses the multidisciplinary approach to provide the best possible care.
