“Cardiac surgery is rewarding because it makes a powerful impact on people’s lives.”

A graduate of Boston University School of Medicine, Dr. Rossi completed his residency at Wayne State University in 2002. He is board certified by the American Board of General Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery. “Cardiothoracic surgery ties in all of my interests including physiology, anatomy and pathology,” Dr. Rossi said. He explained that the surgeries he performs, such as coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair, lower extremity bypass, and others have a remarkable and often immediate impact on his patients’ health. Dr. Rossi said he is also drawn to complex valve surgeries. “I have spent extended periods of time with some highly skilledcardiac surgeons. Learning from the best has helped my own proficiency,” he said.
