Background 

Dr. Boodhwani’s clinical interests include Aortic Valve Repair, Open and Endovascular repair of complex thoracic aorta pathology, Transcatheter Valve Therapies, Mechanical Circulatory support and Heart Transplantation. Dr. Boodhwani is the founder and Co-director of the Ottawa Heart Institute Thoracic Aortic Program.

Dr. Boodhwani earned a BSc with High Distinction from the University of Toronto in 1997 and a medical degree from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, in 2001. These were followed by a residency in cardiac surgery at the Ottawa Heart Institute in 2004. In 2006, he served as a research fellow in cardiothoracic surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and earned a Masters in Medical Sciences from Harvard Medical School. Dr. Boodhwani has won numerous distinctions and awards. He has served his profession in Trinidad and Pakistan and has been extensively involved with Aga Khan Council for Canada in a number of capacities.

Research & Clinical Interests 

Dr. Boodhwani’s research interests include mechanisms of thoracic aortic disease, pre-clinical models of aortic valve insufficiency and repair, and clinical trials in aortic surgery. He has also previously published extensively in the areas of aortic valve repair, angiogenesis and myocardial regenerative therapy, neurocognitive outcomes following cardiac surgery, and complex coronary revascularization, among others.  He has co-authored the two recent Canadian Guidelines statements on medical and surgical management of Thoracic Aortic Disease.  He also serves as the co-Director of the Aortic Valve Repair Summit, the largest international conference on Aortic Valve Repair.
