Research Focus


Perioperative medicine is a growing field. With older and sicker people undergoing surgery, physicians are exposed to challenging new situations that require further research. My research focuses on clinical studies that aim to improve perioperative risk estimation and reduce postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery.
