Research

Dr. Poston has authored more than 100 scientific papers and abstracts. He is currently the principal investigator on several multi-center research studies. In a five-year initiative funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dr. Poston is exploring the use of high-resolution imaging technology during heart surgery to identify the optimal bypass graft for a patient. In another ongoing study, he is investigating the ability of robotic surgery to accelerate the return of exercise tolerance compared to traditional surgical techniques.
