The 2016 Bigeow Lecturer, Joseph Woo serves as the Norman E. Shumway Professor and Chair of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He received his undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania where he also obtained his postgraduate surgical training. At Penn, Dr. Woo also completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in novel molecular strategies for attenuating myocardial ischemic injury for which he won the American Heart Association Vivien Thomas Young Investigator Award. Dr. Woo joined the Penn faculty in 2002 as the Director of the Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Program. He helped to advance the field of complex valve repair and developed several innovative new mitral and aortic valve operations. He also led the Mechanical Circulatory Assist and Cardiac Transplant Program and has likewise developed novel LVAD and transplant techniques. Dr. Woo built a robust practice, performing 350-400 pump cases per year and was listed in the Philadelphia Magazine as one of the region's Top Doctors for several consecutive years. In 2014, Dr. Woo moved to Stanford University to lead the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Under his leadership, overall cardiovascular surgical clinical volume, extramural research funding, and residency education programs in the Department have grown significantly.

"Her heart was an innocent bystander pushed out of its normal position in the middle of the lungs as her right lung shrank and the left one expanded," said Joseph Woo, MD, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Stanford Health Care who oversaw and coordinated the surgical teams that conducted the domino procedure. That displacement made a heart-lung transplant the only viable option for Griffin, said Woo, who is also professor and chair of cardiothoracic surgery at Stanford School of Medicine."
