Dr. Nelson practices cardiothoracic anesthesia at Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in the Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine Department. While at BBH, Dr. Nelson gave educational lectures on cardiopulmonary bypass, management of patients with pacemakers and defibrillators during the perioperative period, management of patients with left ventricular assist devices for non cardiac surgery, and perioperative management of patients with vascular disease, coronary disease, valvular heart disease, and arrhythmias.
Dr. Nelson resides in South Carolina with his beautiful family (pictured below). Wife Melissa, and sons Evan (age 8) and Alex (age 6) accompanied Dr. Nelson to India where they were immersed in Indian culture and made many new friends. When asked what impacted him the most about India and BBH, Dr. Nelson stated “the love and caring demonstrated by the physicians at BBH was a lesson in humility. They truly do anything they can for their patients and desire to constantly improve quality and access to care.”
