Vigneshwar Kasirajan, MD, Chair, Dept of Surgery, VCU Medical Center

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Kasirajan on this well-deserved promotion.

“Dr. Kasirajan has helped to create a vibrant environment at VCU, where he has been since 2000. In addition to his work with transplant patients, he is at the forefront of a new frontier in cardiac surgery that includes artificial hearts and mechanical assist devices. In 2006, he led the first surgical team on the East Coast to implant the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart, the only device of its kind approved by the F.D.A.  His work in this field has helped establish VCU as one of the leaders in the realm of artificial hearts.”
Jerome Strauss, III, MD, PhD, Dean, VCU School of Medicine
