D. Craig Miller - Thelma and Henry Doelger Professor in Cardiovascular Surgery

Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Miller specializes in cardiac valve and thoracic aortic surgery, runs a research laboratory funded by two NIH RO1 grants and lists more than 440 peer-reviewed publications in his bibliography.

Cardiac 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.
