    Collapse Overview
    Ramin E. Beygui, MD, FACS has concurrently joined UCSF School of Medicine Faculty in the division of Cardiothoracic Surgery and assumed the position of medical director of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Washington Hospital Health System. Dr Beygui has practiced cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery for the past 15 years at UCLA and Stanford University Medical Centers and will be practicing the entire scope of his experience and expertise. This includes repair of aortic aneurysms and dissections, minimally invasive and cardiac surgery for structural heart disease and coronary disease, and cardiopulmonary transplantation.
    He has served as the director of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm at UCLA, the surgical director of lung and heart-lung transplantation at Stanford University Medical Center and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and medical director of cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery at NorthBay Medical Center.
