Featured in this episode is Dr. Anthony Acinapura (left), a seasoned cardiothoracic surgeon in New York City. Dr. Acinapura has made an impact in both New York and nationally, lowering mortality rates on a national basis by helping to create a cardiothoracic database for the Society of Thoracic Surgeons still used today.
Having practiced for 47 years — going on 48 — Dr. Acinapura talks with the Radio Rounds team about the immense changes that he has seen in cardiovascular medicine and surgery during the last half-century. As one might expect, that change has been dramatic.
And Dr. Acinapura has had a front row seat.
