Welcome Dr. Andreas de Biasi to the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery!

The Department of Surgery is pleased to welcome Dr. Andreas de Biasi as Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Dr. de Biasi will practice primarily at University Hospital, where he will develop a cardiac surgery practice focusing especially on the surgical management of aortic disease using open, endovascular and hybrid approaches in collaboration with vascular surgery and interventional cardiology colleagues. He will also participate as an active member of the transcatheter aortic valve repair program, and will provide care at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital as needed.

Dr. de Biasi earned a B.S. in Bioengineering from Pennsylvania State University and an MD from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He then completed a General Surgery residency at Weill Cornell Medical College/New York-Presbyterian Hospital, during which he held research fellowships in Thoracic Surgery and Cardiac Surgery, and most recently completed a Cardiothoracic Surgery fellowship at Stanford University.

Dr. de Biasi brings an avid interest in research that crosses disciplines and methods, planning to study such varied topics as acute aortic dissection in patients with active substance abuse behaviors, and the use of advanced analytics to identify risk factors for aortic re-interventions following valve-sparing aortic root replacement or repair of Type A aortic dissection. He also hopes to create a comprehensive aortic database that will capture all patients served by the University of Wisconsin aortic program.

Dr. de Biasi can be contacted at debiasi@surgery.wisc.edu or 608-263-0439.

Welcome, Dr. de Biasi!
