Dr. Elaine Tseng is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the UCSF Medical Center. She has a special interest in the endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic diseases, including descending thoracic aortic aneurysms, acute and chronic type B aortic dissection. She also has a special interest in 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.
Dr. Tseng grew up in North Carolina where she attended the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. She was a National Merit Scholar. She completed her undergraduate Bachelor of Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a GPA 5.0. She earned her medical degree at Harvard Medical School and was one of three recipients per year of the Virginia A. Linnane Scholarship. Dr. Tseng underwent her general surgery training at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she received the George D. Zeidema Surgery Award and the Vincent L. Gott Cardiac Surgery Award. She was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society and was awarded the Nina Braunwald Research Fellowship Award from The Thoracic Surgery Foundation for Research and Education. She also received the Hawley H. Seiler MD Award from the Southern Thoracic Surgical Association. Dr. Tseng underwent her clinical and advanced training in cardiothoracic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
After completing her education and training, she joined the cardiac surgery staff at the UCSF Medical Center in 2002. She has published scientific papers and book chapters on a wide range of topics, including aortic valve disease, neurologic injury after cardiac surgery, and esophageal cancer. She developed an interest in percutaneous aortic and mitral valves and underwent specialized endovascular training in 2006 for thoracic aortic disease. Dr. Tseng is a member of the American Medical Association, American Heart Association, Association of Women in Thoracic Surgery, and Association of Women Surgeons. She is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is certified by the American Board of Surgery.
