Dr. Trevor Upham's passion for treating the patients and the diseases of the heart, lungs and chest and using his problem-solving skills led him to specialize in cardiothoracic surgery. His compassion and empathy for cardiothoracic surgery patients are at the core of his practice. At Georgetown, where he was educated and trained, he began to embrace the principle of cura personalis (care of the entire person) in treating the mind, body and soul of patients with cardiac and thoracic diseases. Dr. Upham specializes in minimally invasive cardiothoracic surgery, off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery, valve repair and replacement surgery, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and thoracic surgery for benign and malignant diseases. He has presented internationally on minimally invasive thoracic surgery techniques. At WakeMed, he finds all the tools at the forefront of treating cardiovascular and thoracic disease—a progressive staff, modern facilities, the latest technologies and cutting edge techniques. As a result, Dr. Upham and WakeMed are able to offer patients the most advanced treatments.
