About Dr. Anthony Caffarelli, Heart Surgeon
Greetings! I'm Dr. Anthony Caffarelli, a cardiac surgeon who graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2000. Throughout my career, I have conducted around 3,500 cardiac surgeries, with a focus on heart valve procedures, accounting for approximately 1,500 cases. Currently, I primarily operate at the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute located at Hoag.
I take pride in my ability to foster a team-oriented approach to providing individualized care for each patient. I firmly believe in the power of collaboration, where Together Everyone Accomplishes More. By working closely with our skilled surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, and staff, we ensure comprehensive care for our patients.
Attention to detail is a core value we uphold. Our team is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care and continuous support, around the clock. We prioritize the well-being of our patients above all else.
