Having performed more than 5,000 open heart surgeries during his 20-plus
year career, Vincent J. DeFilippi, MD, FACS, treats patients as if they
were members of his family. And family figures prominently in his both
his decision to become a physician and his chosen specialty. He is a fourth
generation physician and a strong family history of heart disease influenced
his choice to specialize in heart surgery. A magna cum laude graduate
of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, he earned his medical degree
from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York,
New York in 1988. He completed a general surgery residency and research
fellowship at the University of Chicago/Pritzker School of Medicine, Illinois
and his cardiac and thoracic surgery training at New York Hospital/Cornell
Medical Center and Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. A nationally
recognized expert in the field of cardiac surgery, Dr. DeFilippi is board
certified in cardiothoracic and general surgery by the American Board
of Thoracic Surgery. Since 2008 he has served as the director of cardiac
surgery for Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System and is a clinical
professor in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stanford University.
He knows that an active lifestyle is especially important when there is
a family history of heart disease.
