Prof Marjan Jahangiri

Professor of Cardiac Surgery


Specialises in

I graduated in medicine from University College Hospital, University of London, in 1988. Subsequently, I completed my senior house officer positions at University College London and affiliated hospitals. I completed my training in general surgery in 1992 and embarked on a career in cardiothoracic surgery. I then became a registrar in cardiac surgery at the London Chest, St Bartholomew’s and the Royal Brompton Hospitals in London. I was awarded a research fellowship at the William Harvey Laboratories at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and Medical School.

Having completed my research fellowship in 1996, I returned to the Royal Brompton Hospital as a senior registrar where I trained in the fields of adult and paediatric cardiac surgery. I was awarded a position in sub-specialist paediatric cardiac surgery as a senior resident at the Children’s Hospital, Boston, Harvard. Upon my return from the United States in 1999, I obtained a position as a national trainee in paediatric cardiac surgery at Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street and Birmingham Children’s Hospital for a period of two years. I was appointed as Consultant Cardiac Surgeon and Senior Lecturer at St George's Hospital and Medical School in 2001. I was appointed Professor of Cardiac Surgery at University of London in 2007. I am the first female professor of cardiac surgery in the United Kingdom and Europe.

I operate on 280 - 300 cases per annum – this is one of the largest cardiac surgical services in the United Kingdom. My overall mortality for all cases including complex and major complex heart operations is 1.5 - 3.5%.
