He trained in General Surgery at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia and the University of Maryland in Baltimore. Dr. Crestanello completed his cardiothoracic residency in thoracic surgery at Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education in Rochester, Minn.



Dr. Crestanello is the Co-Director of the Structural Heart Disease Program specializing in conventional and minimally invasive valve surgery and transcatheter valve repair or replacement. His other clinical interests include complex cardiac re-operations, adult congenital heart surgery, hybrid coronary revascularization, surgery for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, and aortic surgery.



Dr. Crestanello current research interests are focused on clinical outcomes after cardiac surgery procedures. They include: a) the effect lung disease on outcomes after heart valve surgery or TAVR, b) hybrid coronary revascularization, c) the effect of hyponatremia on outcomes after cardiac surgery.
