About Me

I usually take care of two types of patients. One is patients with coronary artery disease who have blockages in the heart arteries. The other is peripheral artery disease with blockages in the leg arteries. I treat patients both in the clinic and in the hospital. In the hospital, I provide treatment opening these blockages with balloons and stents. Duke is unique because of its ability to provide innovative treatments to patients. A lot of places around the state and country can provide standard of care, and I think Duke does a really good job of offering that. But the thing that really sets Duke apart is the ability to go one step further and provide new treatments that may provide benefits that others can’t offer. I met a patient early in my training who really had no options for treatment. She had a blockage in a leg artery that we could not open with a balloon and stent. We injected her with cells under a research protocol, and she really experienced a tremendous benefit. We thought it would be short-lasting but we saw her back a couple of months ago and she’s still doing well. That really solidified my interest in doing research on these novel, innovative treatments to our patients.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

My research interests are aligned with the patients that I see in the clinic and in the hospital. My primary goal is to improve the care of patients with coronary artery disease (heart artery blockages) and peripheral artery disease (blockages in arteries of the legs, kidneys and brain). Much of my research occurs at the Duke Clinical Research Institute where we conduct multicenter clinical trials and perform analyses of existing datasets. I also lead our cath lab research group where we offer novel diagnostic tests and treatment options to our patients at Duke.
