    Collapse overview
    Dr. Shuab Omer specializes in coronary arterial revascularization; cardiac valve pathologies related to the aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves; and surgical management of aortic disease of the thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta.

    At the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center (MEDVAMC), Dr. Omer and the VA team provide state-of-the-art cardiothoracic services to the veterans, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement. The MEDVAMC is the flagship hospital of the VA system and is a tertiary referral center.

    Dr. Omer and his colleagues have also been involved in cutting edge research in the VA system in all aspects of cardiothoracic surgery. Dr. Omer’s research focuses on coronary revascularization and transcatheter aortic valve interventions.
