Medical Interests

Always working on the cutting edge in his field, Dr. Rabindra was one of the first in the nation to learn and perform minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (MICS-CABG). Since 2010, he has successfully performed hundreds of minimally invasive procedures. He now teaches and lectures on the technique. His main focus is on achieving better patient outcomes using minimally invasive procedures including multi-vessel MICS-CABG and valve repair and replacement. He is also proficient in off-pump coronary bypass, complex aortic surgery including endovascular and hybrid approaches, video-assisted thorascopic surgery and ablation for atrial fibrillation.

Personal Interests

Dr. Rabindra enjoys spending his free time with his family with a heavy involvement in his kids' activities.
