Clinical Interest for Patients
I am a fellowship trained high-risk obstetric anesthesiologist who specializes in both high-risk parturients and fetal anomalies. My research focuses on maternal hemodynamics, fetal hemodynamics and fetal cardiac function during obstetric and fetal surgery. In addition, I am responsible for all of the quality and patient safety on both our maternal units at Children's Hospital Colorado and University of Colorado Hospital.
My specialty is anesthesiology with focus on high risk pregnancies. My goal is to make my patients comfortable by providing complete anesthesia care. Open communication and collaboration are very important to me and I believe that listening first to all questions and concerns creates a better patient doctor relationship. I have always been passionate about keeping patients comfortable and creating a warm safe environment for patients to heal.
I am passionate about scuba diving with my family all around the world.
I enjoy speaking about obstetric and fetal anesthesiology.
