- Thoracic Surgery (Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery)
- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.
- Transplant Surgery
Transplant surgeons are trained to transplant organs from donors, whether living or deceased, to the patients in need. This includes liver, lung, heart, intestine, pancreas and kidney transplants as well as tissue, bone marrow and cornea transplants. Kidney disease, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and serious infections are just a few reasons you might need a transplant.
Your surgeon will consult with you prior to the operation for a pre-transplant evaluation and they will see you through your healing process to ensure you have no complications. Some surgeons get additional training and education on pediatric transplants to provide special care to children.

We highly recommend Dr. Pizarro. He thoroughly explains everything prior to surgery and follows up to ensure all parent questions and concerns are addressed. He also goes out of his way to ensure that his patients receive the highest care and the best of the best are involved. The staff at Dupont has been extremely helpful and we are forever grateful that they saved our son's life!
We traveled from South Carolina to see Dr. Pizarro. We were given the royal treatment. My grandson has been a patient of his when he practiced in Orlando Fl at Arnold Palmer hospital and we chose not to see any other doctor so we folloewd him to Delaware. With the help of God, Dr Pizarro saved my grandchild's life and I will forever be greatful to him. I recommend him to everyone I know with a child who has a heart defect. God Bless you Dr. Pizarro!
