Biography

I am an interventional cardiologist with additional year of training in peripheral vascular interventions. I am board certified in Internal medicine, cardiovascular medicine, interventional cardiology, endovascular medicine and registered vascular technician. I also have completed Master of Business Administration (MBA).

I am working as Director of Structural heart program and endovascular training at West Virginia University/ Charleston Area medical Center, Charleston, WV. I am a full professor of Medicine and Surgery at West Virginia University and actively involved with teaching and training residents and fellows in vascular surgery. I am also involved with teaching medical residents and students during cardiology rotation.

I am proficient in complex coronary interventions such as coronary bifurcations lesions, Left main interventions and revascularization of CTO. I also perform structural heart interventions that include pulmonary vein stenting, transseptal puncture, ASD/PFO closure, closure of PDA and stenting of coarctation of aorta.

I am a member of ACC/AHA/SCAI/SVS interventional committee such as 1. SCAI: Quality committee 2. SCAI: PVD committee 3. ACC: Interventional council
4. ACC: Geriatric cardiology council. 5.AHA: Vascular biology and PVD council. 6. Board member: Association of black cardiologists (ABC). 7. Board member: Coalition to reduce ethnic and cardiovascular disparities.(CREDO) 9. ACC: Disparities committee.

I have experience with quality control and peer review at my hospital. I serve on various committees including 1. Peer review for vascular surgery and cardiovascular department. 2. Transfusion committee. 3. Vascular surgery fellow selection committee.

I have authored several papers abstracts and book chapters including recent publications such as 1. CATH SAP VII: Embolic protection devices. 2. Vascular Medicine: Companion to Braunwald’s cardiovascular medicine: Endovascular repair of AAA and TAA. 3. ACCEL interview with Dr. Bernard Gersh on: Endovascular treatment of pudendal artery for erectile dysfunction. I have been involved as a faculty member, speaker, live case operator and course co director for national and international meetings such as ACC, AHA, SCAI, TCT, CRT, C3, iCON, AMP, TCT AP, JCR, CIT China, AICT, CBS China and Indo-Vasc. I am on the editorial board for several journals and reviewer for peer-reviewed journals also.
I have also organized conferences as chairman and course director for
1. Annual Cardiac revascularization therapy (CRT 2015 to date): Course co-director for Access and fellows course
2. Co chair of Endovascular fellows course: Complex cardiovascular catheter therapeutics. C3 2015
3. Co Chair of mastering cardiovascular complications (MCVC 2015 to date)
4. Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) session moderator and co chairman SCAI 2015
5. Director of Annual Snow shoe cardiovascular update (2015 to date): Snow Shoe, WV.
6. Co Director: New Cardiovascular horizons. (NCVH) 2015
7. Co chair: Endovascular interventions in Nanjing 2015
8. Course director: Coronary bifurcation summit, Nanjing 2015 to date
9. Course Director: Appalachian Structural Heart Conference, Stone wall, WV , 2017 to date

I have honorary and visiting professor of Medicine degree from Tonji University, Shanghai, China and Saigon University, Vietnam.

I have experience in integrating competing specialties such as vascular surgery and radiology to work in harmony by creation of vascular center of excellence at Charleston area medical center, Charleston, WV. I also have worked well with the CT surgery department and have created heat team to evaluate patients with valvular heart disease and complex coronary artery disease.

I have the experience of 10 years of practicing interventional cardiology, teaching and training residents and fellows and have a strong publishing track record in cardiovascular medicine.. If you need any referral or letter of support, I will be glad to provide.
