Samuel D. Gross Professor and
Chair, Department of Surgery
These are exciting times at Jefferson! This year we "graduated" five topnotch chief residents, and are welcoming our new PG1 residents.
This issue highlights our growing solid organ transplant program, now headed by Dr. Cataldo Doria. Our liver and pancreas volumes continue to grow, and our kidney program remains sound. In the vascular surgery arena, endovascular stent grafts and a multidisciplinary approach to aortic disease are offered in our aortic program, directed by Dr. Joseph Lombardi.
Please join us in welcoming several new members to the surgical team — Dr. Thomas d’Amato (Thoracic Surgery), Dr. Francis E. Rosato Jr. (General and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery) and Jennifer Brumbaugh, MA (Webmaster & Editor of this newsletter).
Lastly, we are delighted to feature the sixth Samuel D. Gross Professor, and Chairman of Surgery for over two decades, Dr. Francis E. Rosato Sr. Dr. Rosato contributed to the education of hundreds of Jefferson residents and medical students, and has provided us, as part of his legacy, with two stellar faculty members, Drs. Ernest (Gary) and Francis E. Rosato Jr.
