As a pediatric cardiac surgeon, I specialize in congenital heart disease in infants and newborns. My approach involves clear and direct communication of expectations with the family, as well as technical excellence and attention to detail.
I was inspired to be a cardiac surgeon through my fascination with the development of the heart and all the moving parts of a well-functioning medical team that can correct critical abnormalities present at birth. Our team, the patient and the family walk the road together.
I consider myself a great team player who is there for your child. I have extensive experience and demonstrated excellence in my practice in Australia and now in the US. I’m delighted to be an Honorary Faculty and Professor in Pediatrics at the University of Sydney, Australia, and a Faculty-at-Large at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney.
Through my research, we want to understand the causes of congenital heart disease and find better ways for managing these conditions through improved operations, aftercare and implantable devices.
During my free time, I enjoy music, nature and travel.
