Dr. Craig Selzman is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the University of Utah who specializes in the care of patients requiring heart surgery. He earned his undergraduate degree at Amherst College and medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine. He received his General and Cardiothoracic Surgery training at the University of Colorado and is Board-Certified in both fields. Dr. Selzman was on faculty at the University of North Carolna before joining the faculty at University of Utah in 2008.

Dr. Selzman is the Surgical Director of the Cardiac Mechanical Support and Heart Transplant program as well as Surgical Director of the Lung and Heart/Lung Transplant program. In addition to his role in the advanced Heart Failure and Artifiical Heart program, he specializes in complex valvular heart disease including reoperative heart surgery, adult congenital heart disease, and aortic root reconstruction. He is one of a few surgeons in the Intermountain West with significant experience with minimally invasive heart surgery for a wide variety of disease, and, in particular, mitral valve repair.

Dr. Selzman is heavily involved with clinical research related to advanced heart failure, transplantation, and ventricular assist devices. He also has an active basic science collaboration with many of our researchers here at the University of Utah. Dr. Selzman is one of a handful of cardiothoracic surgeons that runs a laboratory funded by the National Institute of Health. His research focus is related to examining mechanisms of heart recovery.

February 09, 2014

Dr. Selzman understood the 29 days of hospitalization I had experienced and showed concern for how I was dealing with that. He also quickly assured me that I was now doing fine.

January 17, 2014

Perhaps the best experience I've had with any physician and other care providers in my 66 years.

January 15, 2014

The team was terrific.

January 10, 2014

The care we received here is better than any care we've received elsewhere!

January 10, 2014

my physical response to this corrective surgery has been difficult. Having Dr Selzman and his team provide excellence with attentive and compassionate care made all the difference. Thank you!

November 21, 2013

Dr.Salizman is wonderful

September 23, 2013

the doctor felt my medical wasn't severe enough to operate. I'm just scared that something more is going to happen with my luck to. I want to know I haven't been forgotten about.

July 15, 2013

We are totally impressed with everyone involved in my surgery, recovery and follow up. Everyone were exceptional professionals.

May 28, 2013

all good

May 13, 2013

Left with no questions. When they did arrise it was convenient to get answers

May 09, 2013

Good experience Staff were very helpful.

April 29, 2013

I was treated like. person. with concern and care. I am asked if I understand my condition and explained what I don't. I am explained what is happening to me. I am reassured that I am in good hands. and I feel at ease because I am being talked to and looked at.

February 18, 2013

Very pleased with the degree of knowledge and concern

January 07, 2013

Terri was very informative during my pre-op visit, great personality and concern. I would highly recommend anyone visiting your practice for sugical intervention to be followed by Dr. Allen. In my opinion, he is the best rounded professional on staff in his position. My family concurs that he was very informative, caring, and aware of my situation whenever he rounded on me. He has a great demeanor and followed through efficiently. I felt that any/all of my concerns were addressed and confident that he would relay them to Dr. Selzman. I didn't get the same quality of care with Dr. Kim.

August 07, 2012

Dr. Salzman is the best

June 25, 2012

The UUH LVAD team is tops in my book!!!

June 24, 2012

Outstanding care and concerns

June 11, 2012

This was a very positive and comforting visit.

April 25, 2012

very good.

February 22, 2012

Good experience as bad health situations go!

Academic Bio

As an Associate Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery in the School of Medicine at the University of Utah, Dr. Selzman is heavily invested in the future of our next generation of physicians and surgeons. He is actively involved with medical student teaching, general surgical education, and training of young cardiac surgeons. He has been involved with educational strategies at the national level through his professional societies. Dr. Selzman has mentored dozens of trainees- both in the clinical and basic sciences - over the last 15 years, many which currently hold faculty positions in academic medical centers.

In addition to his involvement with clinical research (see Clinical Trials), Dr. Selzman has an active, NIH-funded basic science laboratory. He collaborates with many of the investigators within the Molecular Medicine Program and with the Integrated Advanced Heart Failure Program. He has published over 100 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals as well as authored several textbook chapters. His laboratory is focused on transcriptional regulation and mechanisms of myocardial recovery. His team uses several models for investigation ranging from individual cardiomyocytes to transgenic mice as well as larger translational studies in sheep, goats, and humans.

In addition to his clinical and research responsibilites here at the University of Utah, Dr. Selzman carries many national and international positions including NIH study sections, Thoracic Transplantation committees, and professional organizational responsibilites.
