Dr. Sdringola-Maranga's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sdringola-Maranga "I am a former Distinguished University Professor at the University Of Texas Medical School Of Houston, I joined the Cardiovascular Association (now known as VITAL Heart and Vein) in 2015. I am a Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology and Certified by the Board Nuclear Cardiology. I received my medical degree summa cum laude from the University of Perugia (Italy) in 1990 and I completed my residency and fellowship training in Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston where I served as a Cardiology Faculty from 2000 till 2015. I have cutting edge knowledge and extensive experience in the treatment of acute coronary syndromes, in the comprehensive management of coronary atherosclerosis (CAD) from prevention to revascularization procedures and in the regression of atherosclerosis. I am an expert in nuclear imaging and positron emission tomography (P.E.T.) for accurate assessment and management of CAD. I am the author of more than 130 peer review publications and I have been the principal investigator of the CENTURY Health Study: a 10-year, 1300 patients, and study to promote healthy lifestyle choices, prevent tragedies and reduce the direct and indirect costs from heart disease in America. In 2009 I earned a Master in Health Care Administration to better respond to people's health care needs. I am very active in the Houston's community providing free lectures and other educational activities for the prevention and regression of atherosclerosis. Among my many Awards for teaching and quality of clinical service, I am a proud recipient of the prestigious Leonard Tow 2012 Humanism in Medicine Award. I am fluent in English, Italian, Spanish and French. I joined VITAL Heart and Vein (formerly known as Cardiovascular Association, a large cardiovascular specialty group ) to further contribute to their exemplary commitment to a value based, patient centered, compassionate service to our large community. I want to meet and exceed the needs and expectations of every patient who seeks my attention. I put myself at the service of my patients and their families, giving them the highest possible respect and the time they desire."
