Early life and education

Born in New Liskeard, Puskas received his early education from Upper Canada College. Later, he graduated summa cum laude from Princeton in 1982. During this period, Puskas achieved the Department of Biology Book Prize and received an honor from Sigma Xi Scientific Honor Society. After graduating from Princeton, Puskas received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 1986. He is a close relative of Ferenc Puskas (his paternal uncle). Ferenc Puskas was a Hungarian Footballer who was widely considered as the greatest footballer of all time.[4][5] As a child, Puskas suffered from a severe childhood illness related to Rh incompatibility; due to this illness, he required 7 complete exchange blood transfusions in the first 24 hours of life.

Career

Puskas completed the 3-year Fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery (1993-1996) from Emory University in Atlanta. He was also appointed as an assistant professor. Later, he was promoted as an associate Professor, and then as a fully tenured Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Emory University.In 1996, Puskas performed the first off-pump CABG at Emory and progressively developed a national and international reputation as a coronary surgical specialist [6]. In 1997, he performed the first off-pump triple, quadruple and quintuple CABG cases in the USA [7] [8]. In 2006, Puskas performed the very first procedure of totally thoracoscopic pulmonary vein isolation in the world [9]. He is also regarded for his participated in the evolution of the instruments required to perform precise coronary surgery.In 2005, Puskas founded the Clinical Research Unit (CRU) of the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery [10]. In 2007, Puskas was named principal investigator for the CRU [11]. In 2014, he was recruited to Mount Sinai Health System in NYC to lead the new Reference Center in Coronary Surgery in 2014 [12] [13]. Puskas served as a professor of Cardiovascular Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and as the Chairman of Cardiovascular Surgery at Mount Sinai Morningside [14] [15][16]. In 2017, Puskas led the merger of two out of three Departments of Cardiovascular Surgery within the Mount Sinai Health System. He has introduced robotic minimally-invasive coronary bypass surgery called TECAB to the Mount Sinai Health System [17] [18]. This system provides patients with a single or double arterial bypass via a tiny 3-4cm incision and no use of cardiopulmonary bypass (heart lung machine) [19]. He also partnered with cardiology colleagues for the development and study of Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [20]. During the COVID pandemic, Puskas has led the rapid repurposing of our Department of Cardiovascular Surgery [21]. The department had been dedicated to performing cardiac surgery and caring for patients with COVID in the ICU and on step-down unit at Mount Sinai Morningside [22] [23] [24] [25][26].
