Ashraf Osman MD Joins St. Rose Stanford Clinics


Ashraf Osman, MD, FACS, FICS, FCCP, a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon and clinical assistant professor at Stanford University, has joined the St. Rose-Stanford Clinics Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery program.

Osman is double board-certified in cardiothoracic surgery and general surgery, and in addition to caring for patients in a clinical setting, he is also on the faculty of Stanford’s Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Dr. Osman is the fifth Stanford full-time faculty physician to join the St. Rose-Stanford Clinics. 

Dr. Osman’s interests cover a broad spectrum of adult cardiac surgery procedures including valve repairs and replacement, coronary artery bypass grafting and lung surgery, including the VATS (video assisted thorascopic surgery) approach. Osman is also a member of Stanford’s Heart Transplant Program, and has a special interest in caring for Las Vegas-area potential heart-transplant patients before and after a transplant procedure at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, California. Stanford University performed the first successful heart transplant in the United States in 1968. Stanford is also a leader in introducing new concepts and treatments to improve patient outcomes.

“Dr. Osman is an incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and accomplished surgeon and academician,” said Rod Davis, senior vice president of operations, Dignity Health Nevada. “The level of care he brings to the St. Rose-Stanford Clinics and the Las Vegas valley is highly impressive. We are pleased that he can provide those in our region who may need a heart transplant with a portion of their pre- and post-surgical care closer to home, as well as provide open heart surgical procedures at local hospitals, including valve repairs, bypass surgery and ventricular-assistive devices.” 

Dr. Osman holds a Doctor of Medicine from Cairo University and served his residencies and fellowships at places like The Cleveland Clinic, Boston University Medical Center, Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA and Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. 

Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican and Stanford Hospital and Clinics formed an affiliation in fall 2011 when the St. Rose-Stanford Neurosurgery Clinic opened at the Siena Campus. The affiliation with Stanford Hospital and Clinics marked the first time the well-known medical institution ventured outside California for a clinical collaboration. The neurosurgery clinic now has two full-time Stanford clinical faculty, and was joined by the addition of the cardiovascular and thoracic surgery clinic in 2013. The partnership combines the high levels of quality and community trust already established at Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican with the world-renowned expertise of Stanford.

Dr. Osman is accepting new patients. For a referral, ask your physician or call 702.616.6580
