The Safety of My Patients Is My Number One Priority


Medicine and surgery are my passions and I permanently strive for the perfect result in regards to my patients surgical care. As a surgeon, being up-to-date with the most recent scientific development is crucial. The safety of my patients is my number one priority and I am bound to provide them with an efficient, low-risk and individualized surgical treatment.

I am an active member of several nationally and internationally medical associations and committees, including the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery and The Society of Thoracic Surgeons and I travel extensively world-wide for speaking engagements, charity surgeries, as well as training of other surgeons.

My Mission and Vision


Surgery can be unpredictable and my job is to minimize the risks and maximize the chance of success. Every patient is unique and thereby requires an individualized surgical approach. A good cardiothoracic surgeon should be fast, thorough, precise, and constantly working on achieving the best possible result. Both of my parents were physicians and they taught me at an early age that hard work always pays off. I am honored and privileged to have helped thousands of patients in the past three decades with their surgeries.
