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 the athletic heart and provide care for all types of athletes, including professional athletes at all levels, tactical/occupational athletes (police, firefighters, paramedics, military) and recreational athletes. In addition, 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. Finally, I also provide guidance/counseling to individuals on best practices for heart screening prior to participation in sports, whether it is pre-season assessments, or sedentary individuals with cardiac risk factors, who are interested in beginning an exercise program. I also serve as the director of cardiac rehabilitation at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and facilitate referrals to our rehab center.

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.
