I have 7 years of experience as an attending Thoracic Surgeon with over 700 major cases performed. I'm an expert in minimal invasive Thoracic Surgery and I have performed more than 100 VATS-Lobectomies and more than 400 minimal invasive mediastinal staging, EBUS. I've consistently demonstrated superior expertise in surgical techniques, with a dedication to perfection, excellence, and optimal patient care. My experience has exposed me to a variety of diverse conditions and their treatments. I have the ability to perform under high stress environments, and have good communication and interpersonal skills. I contribute to a positive setting conducive to effective patient care. I was not only the person who introduced VATS-Lobectomy to The Department of Thoracic Surgery, Odense University Hospital, I was also among the group who established The Center of Excellence for Minimal Invasive Thoracic Surgery at Odense University Hospital.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
