Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
My clinical interests include caring for individuals across the entire spectrum of disease, from professional athletes with cardiovascular-related issues, to patients with mild ambulatory heart failure, and those with end-stage, advanced heart failure requiring mechanical pumps (left ventricular assist devices, "LVADs") and heart transplants. I treat patients with a variety of types of cardiomyopathies, and patients suffering from heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. I have a strong interest in exercise physiology and sports cardiology and provide care for recreational and professional athletes. Along these lines, many individuals living in Colorado participate in a variety of sports in the mountains, and experience symptoms related to hypoxia (low oxygen) at higher altitudes. I work closely with Wilderness and Environmental Medicine, as well as the Altitude Research Center, to care for individuals who suffer from heart and lung-related symptoms related to altitude/environment.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My research interests include exercise physiology of patients across the spectrum of health, ranging from elite/professional athletes, to individuals mild ambulatory heart failure, and those suffering from severe, end-stage heart failure who require mechanical pumps (left ventricular assist devices, "LVADs"). In all of these populations, we have protocols to study cardiopulmonary function at rest and during exercise, as well as cerebrovascular physiology and vascular biology, and keep a bloodbank repository to understand how different disease processes impact the body on a cellular and subcellular level. My current research is supported by the NIH/NHLBI and industry.
