Academic Interests

Dr. Sayer specializes in the diagnosis and management of heart failure. He has expertise in the treatment of advanced heart failure, with a particular interest in mechanical circulatory support and cardiac transplantation. His research interests center on the investigation of novel therapies for the management of heart failure. Dr. Sayer’s primary focus is the prevention and management of ventricular assist device complications. In addition, he has an interest in right ventricular physiology, and the development of treatment strategies for right ventricular failure. Dr. Sayer is currently serving as an investigator on several multi-center trials of drug and device therapies for heart failure.
