Two Chicago surgeons join Methodist's cardiac and vascular services unit

Methodist Hospitals has finalized an agreement with the University of Chicago Medicine to provide cardiothoracic surgery services at Methodist Hospitals. As a part of this partnership, two UChicago Medicine surgeons will join the Methodist Hospitals Heart and Vascular Institute.

“As we move forward as an independent system, clinical partnerships such as this one will be instrumental in ensuring our hospitals’ continued growth and success. We are proud to bring UChicago Medicine to Northwest Indiana,” said Raymond Grady, President and CEO at Methodist Hospitals. “The addition of these two noted surgeons gives Methodist Hospitals a comprehensive program of cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery services.”

Daniel Ciaburri, MD, FACC, FACS, MBA, joined Methodist on Aug. 1, 2018. Ciaburri is a cardiothoracic surgeon with expertise in open heart surgery, thoracic surgery, valve replacement, aneurysm and dissection repair as well as treatment of arrhythmia and coronary artery disease. He received his medical training at the University of Connecticut and Cornell University‘s New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery. Dr. Ciaburri’s office is in Pavilion B, 200 E. 89th Ave., at the Southlake Campus in Merrillville, Ind.

In October, Cosmin Dobrescu, MD, a cardiothoracic and vascular surgeon, also will join Methodist Hospitals. Dobrescu is a graduate of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and was fellowship-trained in congenital cardiac surgery and thoracic surgery at UCLA Medical Center and the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery.

“We continually seek ways to provide greater health care options, easier access and increased convenience for more patients,” said Valluvan Jeevanandam, MD, chief of cardiac surgery at UChicago Medicine. “Our expertise in cardiothoracic and vascular disease and surgery will complement the services provided at Methodist Hospitals.”
