Who We Are
The USC CardioVascular Thoracic Institute consists of cardiothoracic surgeons, physician assistants, nurse coordinators and patient coordinators who work as a team to provide responsive, seamless, quality care to patients and their families. Each surgeon brings a special area of expertise to the mix, ensuring that patients receive the most optimal, appropriate care for their condition.
Surgeons in the Practice are also integral members of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Their involvement with the latest clinical trials and bench research, combined with their focus on teaching future cardiothoracic surgeons, keeps them on the leading edge of advances in cardiothoracic surgery. Patients directly benefit from this expertise.
