Dr. Phillips' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Phillips "Stephen Phillips, MD is a Board Certified General Surgeon and Board Certified Cardiothoracic Surgeon who practices at the ETMC Cardiovascular Institute in Tyler, Texas."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Phillips "Board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon W. Stephen Phillips, MD, was trained in Houston by pioneering heart surgeon Denton Cooley, MD, and has been practicing heart surgery at ETMC since 1997.

However, Dr. Phillips isn't comfortable in the spotlight of publicity but where it matters most: in the surgical suite."Cardiac surgery is complex with each case presenting a different set of obstacles. The stakes are high, which is an aspect that continues to intrigue me.

"Dr. Phillips doesn't just pay attention to his patients when they're on the operating table. He also treats every patient outside of the operating arena as if he or she were the only one he is taking care of. "I want them to recognize me not only as their surgeon but as their friend.""
