He earned his degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry. After completing his residency at Hartford Hospital, he returned to Rochester for a fellowship in cardiothoratic surgery. Early on, he knew that he wanted to perform open heart surgery. The atmosphere, the magnitude of the operationthe surgeon was very skilled, very [much] in control. Among the services Dr. Salzano offers is lung cancer screening for people at risk for the disease. He notes that there is a change in the demographics of cardiac care, with less bypass surgery of traditional heart disease and more treatment of valve disease and end-stage heart failure. Now chairman of surgery as well as co-director of the lung cancer screening program at Griffin Hospital, he praises the hospitals commitment to the Planetree program, which emphasizes patient-centered care.
