D. Craig Miller, M.D.
Thelma and Henry Doelger Professor of Cardiovascular Surgery, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsCardiac and heart valve disease with experimental laboratory large animal projects focused on the investigation of left ventricular and cardiac mechanics, bioenergetics, and LV and mitral valve physiology and pathophysiology. Current thrust is aimed at understanding the mitral valve and subvalvular mitral apparatus and transmural LV wall strains, thickening, and myolaminar fiber-sheet mechanics.
Clinical research interests include thoracic aortic diseases (aortic dissection, aneurysm) and cardiac valvular disease, including surgical treatment, endovascular thoracic aortic stent-graft repair, mitral valve repair, and valve-sparing aortic root replacement.
R. Scott Mitchell
Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch Interests: Disease of the aorta, congenital and acquired. Treatment of aortic pathology, including development of stent graft systems. Patterns of disease in patients treated with mediastinal radiation. Valvular heart disease, especially aortopathy associated with congenital bicuspid aortic valve.
Professor (Research) of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDiscovery, preclinical and clinical development of novel immunosuppressive molecules for prevention or treatment of immune or inflammatory or ischemic injury to cell and organ transplants and for suppression of autoimmune diseases and acute organ injuries including small molecule, monoclonal and biologic classes of therapeutics.
Visiting Instructor/Lecturer, Cardiothoracic Surgery
BioYoshikazu Ono is a pediatric cardiovascular surgeon who is board certified by The Japanese Board of Cardiovascular Surgery.
He graduated from Nagoya City University in 2015 and began his internship at Nagoya City East Medical Center. He then completed his residency in cardiovascular surgery at the National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center. He completed a fellowship in pediatric cardiovascular surgery at the same institution after a three-year residency.
His main interests are congenital cardiac defects and mechanical support in children. He is dedicated to improving the safety and durability of surgical treatments and ventricular assist devices for these patients.

Bruce A Reitz
Norman E. Shumway Professor, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMechanism of allograft rejection for the heart and, lung; late chronic effects of rejection, such as graft coronary, atherosclerosis in the heart and bronchiolitis obliterans in the, lung; treatment of rejection, including pharmacologic agents, total, lymphoid irradiation, and the induction of tolerance in fetal, animals; clinical studies include the results of lung and heart-lung, transplantation, modification of immunosuppressive protocols, and, factors contributing to late chronic rejection.

Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsIn clinical research, Dr. Shrager studies outcomes in a variety of areas within Thoracic Surgery including: parenchyma-sparing operations and minimally invasive resections for lung cancer, transcervical thymectomy for myasthenia gravis, diaphragm plication, and surgical treatment of emphysema.
Dr. Shrager's lab is focused on the impact of disease states upon the diaphragm. His group published the seminal paper (NEJM) describing diaphragm atrophy assoc'd with mechanical ventilation.
Yasuhiro Shudo, MD, PhD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Cardiothoracic Surgery
BioDr. Shudo is a board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine.
His clinical focus is the surgical treatment of end-stage cardiopulmonary failure, including heart transplant, heart-lung transplant, lung transplant, mechanical circulatory support (MCS), and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). He has published numerous landmark papers
Dr. Shudo also performs mitral valve repair/replacement (MVR), aortic valve replacement (AVR), complex valve surgery, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, reoperative cardiac surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
