"Dr. Gilbert Tang serves as the Surgical Director of the Structural Heart Program for the Mount Sinai Health System. Under Dr. Tang’s leadership the program will provide innovative, multi-specialty care for patients with advanced and complex valvular and structural heart disease. Dr. Tang and the team will provide catheter-based options for patients who do not qualify for conventional open surgery. From evaluation to treatment, the program strives to deliver the best possible experience and outcomes. Dr. Tang joins us from Westchester Medical Center where he served as Director of the Valve Disease Center, playing a pivotal role in the launch of their Transcatheter Heart Program. His “concierge” model of care has been well received and recognized in the New York area. Dr. Tang has performed over 300 cases of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (MitraClip) procedures with excellent outcomes, on par with some of the top programs in the country. Dr. Tang has achieved many “first” successes in the region and United States, including transcatheter mitral and tricuspid valve-in-valve replacement, mitral valve-in-ring replacement, and tricuspid valve repair with MitraClip, all performed via the groin without open surgery. In addition to transcatheter valve therapy, Dr. Tang is also an internationally renowned expert in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), repairing aortic aneurysms and dissections without open surgery. Dr. Tang is a regularly invited faculty and guest lecturer at national and international conferences. His results have been published in peer-reviewed medical journals. He has trained many physicians and heart teams to perform transcatheter valve and TEVAR procedures around the world. He is currently involved in several multicenter studies with leading institutions in the US and globally. Dr. Tang received his bachelor's degree at Harvard University and MD at the University of Toronto, where he completed his residency in cardiac surgery as the Chief Resident at the Toronto General Hospital. He completed a Master of Science in tissue engineering at the University of Toronto and an MBA at the Harvard Business School. Dr. Tang pursued specialized training at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York focusing on complex mitral valve repair and TAVR. He also underwent advanced training in TAVR at the Leipzig Heart Center in Germany and the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Tang is a Diplomat and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada."
