After graduating Summa cum Laude from the University of Rome, Dr. Paliotta went on to become board certified in Surgery, Thoracic Surgery and Surgical Critical Care. He has established himself as an expert in the field of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery, completing fellowships at Emory and UCLA. Additionally, Dr. Paliotta has served as Attending Adult Cardiothoracic Surgeon at Portsmouth Regional Hospital and currently is Attending Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeon at University of Oklahoma Health Science Center in Oklahoma City.
Dr. Paliotta is passionate about helping people beyond his local practice, understanding the necessity to provide healthcare to all. This is evident in his extensive volunteer efforts, including mission trips to rural Peru, Ecuador and Egypt to provide congenital cardiac surgery on a humanitarian basis.
This passion for sharing his health knowledge has extended to include interacting with patients through HealthTap’s online services. Dr. Paliotta says that HealthTap “allows [him] to reach out to many more people than [he] could with just [his] local practice,” and that he is “thankful… for the opportunity to extend medical advice and expertise to people nationally and even globally.” We commend Dr. Paliotta for his global service and passion for a healthier and happier world.
