Following a degree in Computer Science Dr Bassin studied Medicine at the University of Sydney and then continued with PhD studies in cardiac electrophysiology. His clinical training took place at St Vincent’s Hospital, Wagga Base, Prince of Wales and Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney as well as Harvard Medical School in Boston, where Dr Bassin undertook his Fellowship training in minimally invasive surgery as well as transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).
“My focus is on providing patients with appropriate treatment in the least invasive way possible. This can include less invasive cardiac or thoracic surgery or newer technologies such as TAVI and robotic surgery.”
Areas of Sub-Specialty/ Special Interests:
• Mitral valve repair
• Minimally invasive heart surgery
• Robotic mitral valve, coronary bypass and thoracic surgery
• TAVI Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
