The new Cardiac Surgery Department of the Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza Hospital in San Giovanni Rotondo (FG), directed by Prof. Mauro Cassese, has been in operation for 18 months. And the results of this year and a half of activity have been extremely positive. Prof. Cassese and his staff have performed more than 500 cardiac surgery interventions, including TAVI, mitral valve operations, revascularizations, plastic valve replacements and other complex interventions.
Equipped with a hybrid operating room housing the best diagnostic technologies, the Cardiac Surgery Department’s contribution has further increased the prestige of the large multi-specialty hospital in Gargano, a real center of excellence in central and southern Italy.
