Dr. Sciortino specializes in adult cardiac surgical procedures including coronary artery bypass; valve, aortic and arrhythmia surgeries; and minimally invasive surgery. He has a special interest in treating women as well as patients with high risk co-morbidities such as heart failure, diabetes and obesity.
