Dr. Caccamo completed his residency at the Cleveland Clinic in 2009. As a medicine resident, he authored and presented research in the field of cardiac transplantation. He completed his cardiology fellowship at the University of Minnesota. At the University of Minnesota he developed his skill set managing patients with advanced heart failure, in particular publishing several articles regarding exercise performance in patients with left ventricular assist devices and immunosuppression and rejection in cardiac transplant patients. After completing fellowship he completed an advanced heart failure fellowship at Allegheny Hospital. He was mentored by Dr. Raymond Benza and developed a strong skill set in management of patients with advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. He is the junior faculty liaison for the pulmonary hypertension council of the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplant (ISHLT). He is also a member of the junior faculty council of ISHLT. He also chaired sessions concerning cardiac transplantation at the annual ISHLT meeting. Dr. Caccamo’s interests are utilizing patient’s specific characteristics in determining induction and maintenance immunosuppression regimens post cardiac transplant, titrating antiplatelet therapy in patients being support with left ventricular assist devices and portopulmonary hypertension. Dr. Caccamo serves as a principal investigator on several studies involving patients with advanced heart failure including stem cell therapies.
