Trumbull doctor named cardiac director

Joseph John Tiano has been appointed Medical Director of the

Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory at St. Vincent’s Medical Center. Tiano practices with Cardiology Physicians of Fairfield County, which has an office in Trumbull.

Tiano is an electrophysiologist specializing in non-surgical electrophysiology procedures to correct cardiac arrhythmias or irregular heart rhythms. In his new role as director, he will be responsible for ensuring that the highest standards are met regarding patient safety and outcomes in the electrophysiology laboratory.

On staff at St. Vincent’s since 2010, Tiano has expertise in performing the latest minimally invasive electrophysiology procedures such as trans-catheter ablation to correct a common arrhythmia known as atrial fibrillation. Since joining St. Vincent’s, he has played a key role in the development of a comprehensive arrhythmia service at St. Vincent’s focusing on “hybrid ablation” to correct A- fib.

He was recently appointed an assistant professor of cardiology at Quinnipiac University and serves on a national advisory committee for Ascension Health, the parent organization for St. Vincent’s.

Tiano has an MD from Temple, where he won the Cardiology Award. Tiano went on to complete fellowships in both cardiovascular medicine and electrophysiology both at Boston Medical Center, where he was awarded the Cardiovascular Fellowship Teaching Award.
