With deep sadness, we share the news of respected integrative cardiologist and former member of the A4M Board of Scientific Advisors, Dr. Stephen Sinatra’s passing. Dr. Sinatra was one of the most highly regarded and sought-after cardiologists whose whole-person approach to cardiovascular care revitalized patients with even the most advanced forms of disease.
A board-certified cardiologist specializing in integrative medicine, Dr. Sinatra was also certified as a bioenergetic psychotherapist and nutrition and anti-aging specialist – making his education and expertise genuinely unparalleled.
During the course of over 40 years of clinical practice, research, and study, Dr. Sinatra obtained numerous certifications, published a dozen best-selling books, and helped discover and develop healing strategies that guide integrative and anti-aging practices today.

The steadily rising number of cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, which grew by nearly a quarter million from 2017 to 2018, continues to rise as advancements in technology, increased availability and accessibility of treatment, as well as a social media-driven de-stigmatization of plastic surgery influence consumer demands. Expenditure on cosmetic plastic surgery exceeded $16.5 billion last year, and current estimates predict the global industry will surge to a valuation of $40 billion by 2023.
In light of dramatically increasing patient spending on and demand of cosmetic procedures – of which there were 17.7 million in 2018 – the industry of aesthetic medicine may soon require a helping hand. Researchers point to primary care as the potential partner to plastic surgeons and cosmetic specialists, with a growing trend of physicians adopting Botox injections and chemical peel treatments into their practice.
