Personal Statement

 

It is an honor to be a member of the cardiothoracic surgery team at Weill Cornell Medicine – New York Presbyterian Hospitals, which provides world-class surgical care on a daily basis. This is achieved with an expertise that derives from a prestigious tradition built by past and present mentors, alongside the collaborative effort of dedicated nurses, technicians, anesthesiologists, critical care physicians and surgeons. I fully embrace the institutional view that even cutting-edge medical care can only be regarded as optimal if provided in a compassionate fashion and corroborated by an empathetic approach. I highly regard the two other pillars of our institution, which are teaching and research. The first strives to form exceptional health care providers, and the latter aims to expand the boundaries of our field in a vibrant academic environment.
