According to Tony Caffarelli, Medical Director of Newport Cardiac & Thoracic Surgery, nothing is more important than providing patients with the highest level and care of quality support 24/7.
“We are the cardiothoracic surgery center in which team really means, Together Everyone Accomplishes More. It’s a difficult process to become a member of our team and easy to get benched. Our surgeons, physician assistants, nurses and staff have all contributed to our award-winning services, research results and clinical trials.”
Growing up in a military family on the East Coast, Dr. Caffarelli joined the Marine Corps prior to attending thoracic surgery at Stanford School of Medicine, including Chief Residencies in Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery and Chief Resident in Thoracic Transplantation. Throughout his tenure at Stanford, he received numerous awards including the John Henry Smith, III, M.D., “Outstanding Surgical Resident of the Year” Award in 2007 and the Western Thoracic Surgical Association, Norman E. Shumway Award in 2009.
Dr. Caffarelli joined Newport Cardiac & Thoracic Surgery, formerly the Raney Zusman Medical Group, in July, in 2010.
