Pediatric heart surgeon

About me

Dr. Neil Cambronero specializes in heart surgery for congenital heart defects in pediatric patients, including newborns.

Cambronero's research uses computer simulation to predict outcomes of invasive cardiac procedures, with a focus on three-dimensional computerized cardiac modeling. He is also pioneering the use of 3-D printed modules for surgical residents' simulation training.

Cambronero earned his medical degree from the State University of New York Upstate Medical University and completed a surgical residency at Mount Sinai Hospital. At UCSF, he completed a fellowship in adult cardiothoracic surgery and a fellowship in pediatric cardiac surgery. He later completed a fellowship in congenital cardiac surgery at Texas Children's Hospital.
