About me

After graduating with distinction from the University of Rome, Mr Codispoti trained extensively in cardiac and thoracic surgery in Rome, Boston, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Sydney. He was awarded research prizes and travelling scholarships, which allowed him to acquire advanced skills in the surgical management of heart and lung failure, including intrathoracic transplantation.

Mr Codispoti was appointed consultant cardiac surgeon at Papworth in 2007 and during his first year initiated and developed a programme of off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery. This technique avoids the use of cardiopulmonary bypass and its related complications while safeguarding the principal aims of myocardial revascularisation, thereby allowing a more speedy recovery and return to active life. Together with Mr Francis Wells, he started the programme of video-assisted thoracoscopic (keyhole) mitral valve surgery. His main interests include minimally invasive valve surgery, minimally invasive coronary surgery with arterial grafts and surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF).
