As the only Pediatric Cardiologist in the private sector in Jordan, I had referred patients from around a population of two thousand people, and so I gained lot of experience in clinical, diagnostic & interventional Pediatric Cardiology.

The interventional procedures I performed are almost half of all procedures. Out of these I have done around two hundred seventy Amplatzer ASD closures & a similar number of PDA closures. I have done more than 30 muscular & perimembranousVSD closures. I am a Training Instructor for transcatheter closures using the Amplatzer devices.

I supervised many training workshops on Amplatzer transcatheter closures in Yemen , Iran, Iraq, Sudan ,Syria & Egypt. Further training workshops are being arranged in the same and other countries.
