Dr. Alfieris is the only pediatric cardiac surgeon in the region and stresses a team approach to the care of infants and children. Dr. Alfieris works closely with the Golisano Children's Heart Center cardiologists, intensive care specialists, anesthesiologists, surgical nurse practitioners, child life specialists, patient care coordinators, nurses and a group of allied professionals to care for the patients and their families.
