Neil Cambronero M.D. is a pediatric heart surgeon performing cardiac surgery on neonates, infants, children. Dr. Cambronero received his undergraduate degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He received his Medical Degree from the State University of New York at Syracuse.

After completing his surgical residency at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, he completed his Adult Cardiothoracic surgery fellowship and his Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Fellowship here at UCSF. He is a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and the Western Thoracic Surgical Association. Dr. Cambronero has been the recipients of numerous awards including the Arthur Aufses Jr. Award from the Mount Sinai Hospital, given to the "Chief Resident who demonstrates overall excellence as a surgical mentor".

  • Arthur H. Aufses Chief Resident Award, Mount Sinai Department of Surgery, 2008-2009
  • Surgery Resident of the Year, Mount Sinai School of Medicine Cabrini Program, NYC, 2005-2006
  • Surgery Intern of the Year, Mount Sinai School of Medicine Cabrini Program, NYC, 2004-2005
  • Award of Honor, Department of Biological Sciences, SUNY– Stony Brook, 1995-1996

Dr. Cambronero conducts research in the development of strategies to improve surgical education. He works with a team of biomechanical and mathematical engineers who are interested in creating computerized patient specific cardiac models which can be altered in silico to predict the surgical outcome of invasive cardiac procedures.
