Gabriele Di Luozzo, MD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at the Mount Sinai Health Care System. He currently is the Director of Thoracic Aortic Surgery at the Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Beth Israel Campuses. He directs one of the largest Thoracic Aortic Programs in the country with over 1,400 patients maintained in his aortic aneurysm surveillance program.
Dr. Di Luozzo is originally from New York City and has gained his training in Cardiac and Aortic Surgery in the New England area. He has returned to his roots in New York City and has been in practice for over 11 years. He has been on faculty at Mount Sinai Hospital for the majority of his time as a practicing cardiac surgeon. One of the main reasons Dr. Di Luozzo returned to New York was to work alongside Dr. Randall Griepp, a pioneer cardiac and aortic surgeon at Mount Sinai Hospital. After completing his aortic surgery fellowship, he joined Dr. Griepp as his associate until he retired in 2012.
As a cardiac surgeon he has focused his practice on patients with valvular heart disease (like bicuspid aortic valve), aortic and connective tissue disorders (like Marfan and Loey-Dietz Disorder) and aortic dissections. He approaches most patients with valvular heart disease with a minimally invasive approach to reduce pain, blood loss and promote a more speedy recovery. With respect to aortic conditions, he specializes in all areas of the aorta from the aortic valve to the aortic bifurcation. He has a busy practice in aortic root (David procedure) replacement surgery, aortic arch and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repairs. He is one the busiest surgeons in the north east and south east regions with patients requiring an aortic arch and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Each patient is evaluated for either an endovascular (TEVAR) or open repair depending on patient’s needs, condition, and appropriateness of either approach.
He has authored just fewer than 100 publications mostly in the area of thoracic aortic diseases and outcomes from different operations. His research has been presented at both national and international scientific meetings. Dr. Di Luozzo is the Director of a large animal laboratory which investigates ways to prevent neurologic injuries after different aortic procedures. This is a unique laboratory since much of protective measures used in the operating room world-wide have been first investigated in this laboratory.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
