Northwest Healthcare recently welcomed cardiothoracic surgeon Zain Khalpey.
Dr. Khalpey has served the Tucson community since 2012, building a reputation for his work using artificial intelligence, regenerative medicine, and precision medicine techniques to impact heart patients throughout the region.
He has a special interest in sudden cardiac death, robotic mitral valve repair, total artificial hearts, and using short- and long-term devices in shock and heart failure patients.
Khalpey completed medical school at Guy’s, Kings & St Thomas Hospital, London School of Medicine and continued his training in the U.S., with a residency and fellowship at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
This was followed by a super-fellowship in mechanical circulatory support devices for advanced heart failure at Columbia University’s New York Presbyterian Hospital.
He completed a Ph.D. in cardiothoracic surgery, bioenergetics and cardiac transplantation through the Imperial College UK with work conducted at the University of Gdansk in Poland, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and Harvard University.
