I regularly perform surgery at hospitals including Einstein Medical Center Montgomery and Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my relationships with patients. I do my best to make complex information about heart valve disease and treatment understandable to my patients, their family and friends. As a result, I take pride in my in-patient and out-patient satisfaction scores.
I also believe that the main strength of my practice is excellent clinical outcomes for a variety of complex valvular and aortic surgeries.
As cardiac surgery requires many different types of people to work together within an advanced medical teams, my collaboration with cardiologists and other health care providers is critical.
I feel lucky to be surrounded by an exceptionally strong clinical team of physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and surgeons at Einstein Health.
2 Patient Reviews for
"As a heart surgeon, Dr. Tuluca was wonderful. She was willing to spend a great deal of time with me, answering all of my questions and getting to know me. We talked about the benefits of minimally invasive procedures and the criteria to be a candidate.
I was very lucky to be able to get back to my life relatively quickly. I give Dr. Tuluca and the entire cardiac surgery team around her all the credit for that!"

"Dr. Tuluca has the best bedside manner ever! She’s intelligent and confident about her skills as a surgeon. I felt safe knowing she was handling my procedure . I had rheumatic mitral valve heart disease. I’m am thankful she was there she saved my life. She made me feel at peace before my procedure. I was very scared. But, after meeting Dr. Tuluca, the kindness and confidence she had put me at ease.
Thank you Dr Tuluca for being amazing! ♥️"
