Dr. Allan S. Stewart's bio

I earned my medical degree from the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, where I was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. I received his Postgraduate training in General Surgery from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where I also spent two years researching human gene therapy for cardiac illness. Duirng this time, I was the five time recipient of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Annual Surgical Scholar Award, the 1999 AHA Vivian Thomas Young Investigator Award, the 2000 Institute of Human Gene Therapy Young Investigator Award, and the 2000 AATS C. Walton Lillehei Young Investigator Award. After completing my residency, I trained in Cardiothoracic Surgery Training at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. Upon the completion of my training, I remained on the faculty of NYP/Columbia, where I serve as Director of Aortic Surgery. As an attending surgeon at Columbia, I have co-authored over 50 manuscripts and book chapters, and lectured and/or operated on five continents in over 20 countries about valvular heart disease. I have created a variety of innovative and minimally invasive approaches to valvular heart disease, and am actively involved in clinical trials of transcatheter valve therapy. Additionally, I am a member of our specialty’s most prestigious societies including the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Thoracic Surgery, and the American Association of Thoracic Surgery. I was elected into Castle Connolly's Best Doctors in America, and Best Doctors in New York. I serve as a reviewer on both of our speciality’s most prestigious journals: the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery and the Annals of Thoracic Surgery, as well as an expert for your website and for aorticdissection.com. I have served as a medical correspondent for Fox News and the Rachel Maddow show. On a personal note, I become an advocate for patient recovery after heart valve surgery. I have recently completed three triathlons with a former valvular heart disease patient and ran the NYC marathon with another one of my patients, who celebrated the one year anniversary of his valve sparing aortic root replacement on the day of the marathon!
