“Our foundation is built to help make a difference in the lives of the patients we serve.”


Christiano Caldeira, M.D. is the Surgical Director of the Heart,

Lung and Mechanical Circulatory Support Programs at

Tampa General Hospital. Dr. Caldeira is an expert in high-risk

cardiac surgical procedures, and has a special interest in surgical therapies for the treatment of heart failure.


After recognizing a need to educate and support patients that are in need of Ventricular Assist Devices, Beat After Beat Foundation, Inc was established in 2012.
