Dr. Cooley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cooley "Andrea Cooley, DO is a Board Certified Cardiothoracic Surgeon and Board Certified General Surgeon practicing at the UT Health East Texas Physicians Cardiovascular Surgery Clinic in Tyler, Texas"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cooley "Board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Andrea Cooley believes in making patients and their families part of the healthcare team. "Having surgery is a very big thing, so it's important to have open communication with the patient and the family and make sure they understand exactly what they can expect so that some of those unknowns are taken off the plate.

"I think one of my strongest traits is being able to communicate well with people regardless of their medical background, so they can really understand things and feel comfortable."

In addition to "performing the full spectrum of cardiothoracic surgery," Dr. Cooley is helping to pioneer a new minimally invasive treatment for atrial fibrillation. Called Hybrid Maze, the procedure doesn't require open chest surgery and has a shorter recovery time. "There are only a few centers in the country that do Hybrid Maze and it has very promising results, so we're pretty excited about it.""
