    Personal Statement

    I clearly remember the day I witnessed a live demonstration of a transcatheter aortic valve replacement more than ten years ago when I was a cardiology fellow in Japan. I was fascinated by the successful, seemingly easy, minimally invasive procedure. At the same time, I never imagined this procedure to evolve to the current level of sophistication which has become a part of standard daily practice. Since then, my particular interest in structural heart disease has been expanding with each technical advancement solidifying my desires to partake in this rapidly developing field. I look forward to helping bring those advancements to the people of Kentucky.
