The Best Doctor For Bloodless Heart Surgery

Dr. Ciuffo is an expert in bloodless heart surgery. He completed surgical training and earned his degree at one of Italy’s oldest medical schools. He also once taught and practiced at the University of Pittsburgh, where he gained experience in the clinical and technical aspects of minimally invasive bloodless heart surgery. Throughout his career, he has studied and practiced blood sparing techniques, high-risk cardiac surgery, heart and lung transplantation, heart failure and atrial fibrillation surgery. Dr. Ciuffo currently directs a Cardiothoracic Surgery practice and heads a dedicated Minimally Invasive and Bloodless Heart Surgery Program at Mercy Medical Center in Canton, OH. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and is a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons. His current academic and clinical activity is entirely devoted to the surgical therapy of coronary, valvular and thoracic aortic disease with the most advanced blood sparing, minimally invasive and beating heart surgery techniques.

Minimally Invasive Bloodless Heart Surgery

New techniques and protocols in bloodless heart surgery allow Dr. Ciuffo to present excellent results and greatly improved quality of life in all patients, even chronically sick or elderly patients. The development of Minimally Invasive Aortic and Mitral Valve Surgery techniques constitutes one of the most challenging and revolutionary chapters in the history of his specialty and in his professional career. These state-of-the-art surgical procedures are carried out through a small incision on the chest wall, right over the valve to be repaired or replaced. The end result is a procedure performed with a great level of accuracy, no cutting of any chest bone, less postoperative pain, greatly diminished transfusion requirements and wound problems, a quicker recovery, and excellent cosmetic results.
