Welcome from the division director
Welcome to Ohio State's Division of Cardiac Surgery. We have assembled a team of highly skilled cardiac surgeons who are focused on pushing the forefront of research and procedures to advance our field and the care we provide our patients. As a high-volume quaternary referral center, our team tackles some of the most complex patient cases in the state and surrounding region. As central Ohio’s only adult transplant center, we feature a robust heart and lung transplant program as well as a large mechanical circulatory support program evaluating the most advanced therapies for our patients. I joined Ohio State for the boundless opportunity here to collaborate with clinicians and researchers and for the enormous scope this institution has to offer. You will find this same opportunity whether as a faculty member, trainee or student.
