This content was provided by Dr. Bacchetta "Dr. Matthew Bacchetta is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Cardio-thoracic Surgery and the Surgical Director of the Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center of CUMC-NYP. He earned his MD from the Weill Medical College of Cornell University where he also did his general surgical training. Following completion of his Thoracic Surgery Fellowship at Columbia, he was appointed to the Thoracic Surgery faculty at NYP/CUMC. He is also the Surgical Director of the Adult Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Program and the Director of the Pulmonary Thromboendarterectomy Program at NYP/CUMC.

He is also one of the few skilled surgeons in the US who performs pulmonary thromboendarterectomy for CTEPH (chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension). Under his leadership, the PTE program at CUMC has grown and services patients from around the nation. Dr. Bacchetta is also a lung transplant surgeon, and he has led efforts at Columbia in bridge to lung transplantation (BTT), which recently reported the best survival in the world for patients who underwent BTT*.
