Elaine Tseng, M.D.

Heart and lung surgeon

Dr. Elaine Tseng is a cardiothoracic surgeon with expertise in valvular heart disease and coronary artery revascularization. Her special interests include aortic valve surgery, ascending aortic and arch surgery, mitral valve repair, reoperative cardiac surgery, off-pump coronary artery bypass and Maze procedure for atrial fibrillation. She has published scientific papers and book chapters on topics including aortic valve disease, neurologic injury after cardiac surgery and hypothermic circulatory arrest (HCA).

Tseng earned a bachelor's of science degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. She earned a medical degree at Harvard Medical School and completed general surgery training and advanced training in cardiothoracic surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she received the George D. Zeidema Surgery Award and the Vincent L. Gott Cardiac Surgery Award. Tseng, an assistant professor of surgery at UCSF, is a member of the Association of Women in Thoracic Surgery and Association of Women Surgeons and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
