Jacob  Uhler, MD USAP Bio

I am a Cardiothoracic fellowship-trained anesthesiologist. My areas of specialty are heart and lung surgery, with an emphasis in adult heart valve surgery and minimally-invasive surgery, vascular surgery, and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). I also enjoy practicing general anesthesia for pediatrics, general and orthopedic surgery.

I have lived in the Western United States for most of my life and love it here in Las Vegas. I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures. I speak Russian and lived in the Ukraine for a few years. I am currently living in Henderson with my wife and four children.


Areas of Clinical Interest

I am interested in researching and teaching advanced 3-dimensional echocardiography applications in heart surgery and applications of ultrasound to regional nerve blockade for post-operative pain management. I am also engaged in improving anesthesia for minimally-invasive heart and lung surgery, and blood product management during surgery.
