Jennifer A. Tremmel MD, MSAssistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular), Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, California; Susan P. and Riley P. Bechtel Medical Director of the Women’s Heart Health Program at Stanford; Interventional Cardiologist
Dr. Jennifer A Tremmel is an Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular) at Stanford, where she works as an interventional cardiologist. She completed her undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Iowa and did her residency in Internal Medicine at Dartmouth. Prior to coming to Stanford for fellowship, she completed a Maters in Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health. At Stanford, she did fellowships in general cardiology, preventive cardiology, and interventional cardiology.
Shortly after fellowship, Dr. Tremmel started the Women’s Heart Health Program at Stanford and now serves as its Susan P. and Riley P. Bechtel endowed Medical Director. She conducts research on sex differences in cardiovascular disease, with much of her work focusing on patients with angina in the absence of obstructive CAD. This includes studying endothelial dysfunction, microvascular dysfunction, and myocardial bridging in patients with stable angina, and myocardial infarction with nonobstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) and spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) in patients with acute angina. She also was an early adopter of the transradial approach and is a national expert on the topic. More recently, she started the CTO program at Stanford and has contributed to the field by demonstrating that the radial approach and same-day discharge are readily achievable in complex PCI.
