"I am fascinated by how and why arrhythmias occur in children. Many of these frightening conditions are completely curable, and I love being able to educate my patients and their families to demystify the diagnosis. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to rid them of their disease. Some of our patients have life-threatening conditions or have even survived a sudden-death event; we have the technology to bring them back to normal quality of life and enable them to be normal kids again. It amazes me every day. Not a day goes by that I dont relish the chance to help someone in that way."
