Dr. Marko T. Boskovski is a cardiothoracic surgeon who cares for patients with heart disease. He specializes in complex surgery of the thoracic aorta (the part of the aorta, which is the body's largest artery, located in the chest). He has a special interest in aortic root surgery (repairing an enlarged section of the aorta to prevent a rupture or other problems), including the Ross procedure (which replaces a damaged aortic valve with the patient's pulmonary valve), valve-sparing aortic root replacement (techniques that preserve the patient's aortic valve) and aortic valve repair.
Boskovski's research focuses on the biomechanics and genetics of diseases affecting the thoracic aorta and surgeries like the Ross procedure.
Boskovski earned his medical degree as well as a master of health science degree at Yale School of Medicine. He completed a master of public health degree at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He completed a residency in general surgery and a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
