Assistant Professor

Nicholas Teman, MD, is a cardiac surgeon at UVA, where he directs the adult ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) program and is co-director of the thoracic and cardiovascular ICU. He specializes in all aspects of adult cardiac surgery, including coronary artery disease, valvular disease, surgical ablation for atrial fibrillation, mechanical circulatory support, heart transplantation and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.

Dr. Teman was born in Spokane, Washington, but moved frequently growing up because his father was in the Air Force. His family eventually settled in the Florida panhandle, and he graduated from the University of Florida with degrees in English and biochemistry. Dr. Teman earned his medical degree from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, and completed a general surgery residency and surgical critical care fellowship at the University of Michigan Health System. He came to UVA for his residency in cardiothoracic surgery, and joined the faculty in 2017.

Dr. Teman is married with two young daughters. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling and spending time with his family.
