He is on staff and performs minimally invasive heart and vascular surgeries at Northern Michigan Hospital. He has been published in medical journals including "American Heart Journal", "Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology" and "Chest". He was asked to lecture and be the keynote speaker in Cantanzaro, Italy in 2001 and he continues to lecture regionally and nationally. Because of his expertise, skill, and knowledge, he was chosen by a national leading laser company to teach other physicians the revolutionary laser vein procedure.
Dr. Amalfitano relocated to Traverse City in 2004 to be closer to family. After realizing there was a significant need in the community to provide the latest treatments for varicose vein problems, he established a vein center in the Munson Professional Building. He performed the 1st non-surgical laser vein treatment in Traverse City, thereby eliminating painful vein stripping operations. His innovative approach has brought vein treatments out of the hospital, where infection rates can be high, and into a state-of-the-art medical office. The Amalfi Vein Center is devoted to the full time care and treatment of vein problems in a comfortable and safe medical environment.
