Dr. Omar A. Jarral, MD PhD FRCS (CTh) is an Attending Cardiac Surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital and the Northwell Cardiovascular Institute, New York. He specialises in aortic surgery, and all aspects of valve reconstruction, including minimal access surgery and transcatheter approaches. He completed his fellowship training at Duke University and the University of Pennsylvania during which he was the American Association for Thoracic Surgery Evarts A. Graham Fellow. Before completing his fellowship training in the USA, he completed his general cardiothoracic training at a number of historic London teaching hospitals: Barts, St. Thomas' and the Royal Brompton.

Prior to being recruited to Lenox Hill, he was Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at St. Thomas' Hospital, London. He completed medical school at Imperial College London. During his surgical training, he completed a PhD in cardiovascular sciences, focusing on aortic surgery. He completed a Biodesign Fellowship at BioInnovate and Boston Scientific Corporation. During this fellowship, he was inventor or co-inventor of four transcatheter mitral/tricuspid devices which have received international and US patents, and are undergoing development. He is author of over 60 peer reviewed scientific publications, and is a previous member of the European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgeons residents committee.
