    Bio

    Dr. Keller is a native of Louisiana. He spent a large part of his early
    childhood living and being educated in East Africa, as his father moved
    the family to Kenya to complete his Ph.D. in Political Science, and then
    to Ethiopia during the revolution so that he could research Ethiopian
    politics firsthand. He completed high school in Berkeley, California and
    then attended the University of California in Los Angeles for his undergraduate
    studies, and subsequently Duke University School of Medicine where he
    graduated with honors.


    Dr. Keller completed his general surgery internship, residency and research
    fellowship at Tulane School of Medicine, where he participated actively
    in various experimental and clinical research projects. His thoracic and
    cardiovascular surgery residency was completed at the Carolinas Heart
    Institute (Sanger Clinic)in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dr. Keller is board
    certified in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery.


    Dr. Keller is author or co-author of more than 40 scholarly publications,
    presentations, book chapters and abstracts, and has participated in countless
    experimental and clinical studies. Thus, he is intimately aware of and
    involved in the application and development of cutting edge technology,
    and dedicated to providing access to the best that medicine has to offer
    for his patients. He has also received scores of prestigious awards including:
    the Tulane School of Medicine Owl Club Award of Excellence in Teaching,
    the Robicsek Traveling Fellowship (Lahr, Germany) and numerous others.
    He maintains membership in the American College of Surgeons, The Society
    of Thoracic Surgeons, The Southern Thoracic Surgeons Association, and
    numerous other professional organizations.


    His professional interests include valvular heart disease, minimally invasive
    valve surgery and endovascular surgery for aortic aneurysms. As a devoted
    father and family man, Dr. Keller has long had interest in reaching out
    to children in his community in an effort to show them that the world
    is much bigger than the one they see every day. Over the years he has
    been involved in various activities and fund raising efforts including
    associations with The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Climbing for
    Kids, both charities that inspire kids to test their limits.
