Rene Favaloro

Dr. Rene Geronimo Favaloro was an Argentine cardiac surgeon who created the technique for coronary bypass surgery.

In 1967, Rene Favaloro became the first surgeon to perform a coronary bypass surgery on a patient suffering from Coronary artery disease. This procedure later developed into the most important technology in coronary surgery.

Favaloro was born and raised in 'El Mondongo', a low-middle class neighborhood of La Plata, Argentina. At an early age he developed a love for football soccer, favoring Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, a popular club in the city.
