Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harris III "My interest is heart valve surgery. In particular, I specialize in minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS). This includes minimally invasive AVR, robotic assisted mitral valve repair and mini MAZE procedures, as well as TAVR. I believe that all patients deserve state of the art treatment as well as the knowledge that they are treated just as carefully as I would treat a member of my own family.

Cardiothoracic surgery involves the heart and other areas within the chest. A cardiothoracic or thoracic surgeon provides care for patients with diseases within the chest area. This encompasses treating heart disease and abnormalities of the heart vessels and valves, lung cancer, tumors within the chest area, diseases of the diaphragm, chest injuries, and trachea and airway problems. Thoracic surgeons have exceptional knowledge of diagnostic and surgical techniques and physiology of the heart, lungs and respiratory system."
