Mr Franco Ciulli
Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon
My main interest is coronary artery bypass surgery, which represents over 75 percent of my workload. The vast majority of this work is done 'off-pump', a technique that I helped to develop in Bristol.
I have a particular interest in mitral valve repair, having acquired up-to-date techniques in internationally renowned centres such as Broussais (Paris), St Vincent's (Sydney), Mestre (Italy) and Papworth (UK).
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Franco Ciulli at Spire include:
Spire Bristol Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
Clinical Director of Cardiac Services, Bristol Royal Infirmary.
Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Bristol Royal Infirmary.
I thoroughly enjoy my work and there is little time outside to dedicate to other activities. I do however enjoy a gruelling couple of hours on the tennis courts (summer and winter), and I am a Department of Transport qualified costal skipper, working towards the Yachtmaster Certificate.
