    Temp, Cardiothoracic Surgery

    Bio Mary Sheridan Bilbao, PA-C, FAPACVS is an advanced practice provider who specializes in Cardiothoracic Surgery. She completed her both her Undergraduate degree and her Masters of Physician Assistant Studies at Marywood University. She has many years of cardiothoracic surgery experience, and joined our team in 2014. She works in both in-patient and out-patient aspects of care, assists in surgery, and participates in multiple studies and laboratory research. She has expertise in open and endoscopic vein harvesting, open and endoscopic radial artery harvesting, and assisting in cases including valve replacements, minimally invasive aortic and mitral valve repair/replacements, ascending aorta/aortic dissection/aortic arch repair/replacements, redo surgeries, coronary artery bypass grafting (off and on-pump), robotic-assisted minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting, minimally invasive myocardial bridge unroofing, heart/lung transplants, VADs, ECMO. She frequently participates in training new PAs and NPs, APP fellows, residents and medical students in OR skills, surgical approaches, endoscopic vein harvest, endoscopic radial artery harvest. Also, she has advanced training in assisting in robotic cases for minimally invasive mitral valve surgery. In the clinic, she frequently performs history & physicals, pre-op evaluations, ordering/interpretation of studies & labs, and coordination of in-patient and out-patient care.

    Mary has also been a member of Dr. Joseph Woo's Stanford Advanced Cardiovascular Therapeutics and Surgical Biomechanics Translational Research Laboratory
    Woo Lab (http://med.stanford.edu/woolab.html), since 2012. She has been involved in many clinical trials and published research.

    Bio Before joining Stanford, I was a research associate at Child & Family Research Institute in British Columbia Children's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada. I have obtained my honors B.MedSc. from the University of Western Ontario with high distinction, and earned a master?s degree in pharmacogenomics from the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. degree in cardiovascular pharmacology from the University of British Columbia.

    My on-going research at Stanford has a focus on understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms contributing to the progression of thoracic aneurysm and aortic dissection in connective tissue disorders, including Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, using both transgenic mouse models and a vascular model derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). I previously developed a novel quantitative analysis of elastin using multiphoton microscopy that could lead to an early diagnostic method of Marfan syndrome. Further, my ultrasound study strongly supports the potential use of doxycycline for the prevention of Marfan-linked aneurysm.
