Sandeep Gupta is now Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stony Brook University Medical Center. He comes to SBUMC from the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, where he completed his General Surgery Residency, Transplant Immunology Fellowship, and Cardiothoracic Surgery Fellowship.
Gupta will focus his practice at Stony Brook on surgery for all forms of adult heart disease. His special interests include minimally invasive complex mitral valve repair and aortic valve surgery, including robotic mitral valve repair. His practice will also include treating patients with coronary artery disease with all arterial conduits. Gupta has extensive experience with diseases of the aortic root, arch, and thoracoabdominal segments of the aorta and in treating patients who need reoperative surgery.
“The appointment of Dr. Gupta is an important addition to our cardiothoracic surgery program,” said Todd K. Rosengart, Chair of the Department of Surgery and Co-Director of the Heart Center. “Dr. Gupta’s experience and skill will assist us in performing minimally invasive complex mitral valve repair.”
“We are pleased to add Dr. Gupta to this surgical group, which is a key part of the development of a comprehensive surgical program at Stony Brook for treating high-risk patients who have had myocardial infarctions as well as congestive heart failure, aortic disease, and a history of prior cardiac surgery in ways that are highly effective, technologically advanced, less invasive, and lead to better outcomes for patients,” added Thomas Bilfinger, Chief of Thoracic Surgery.
Gupta has published in numerous medical journals, as well as presented at national and international surgery meetings. He received the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Innovator Award for development of devices to enhance the practice of minimally invasive mitral valve repair surgery. Gupta was selected for inclusion in the 2009 edition of Guide to America’s Top Surgeons, published by the Consumers’ Research Council of America.
