As one of the leading physician groups in Central Texas, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeons (CTVS) has been proud to offer the most specialized and innovative cardiothoracic and vascular surgical care available. CTVS has been a pioneer for over 60 years in state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical procedures, specializing in surgery of the heart, lungs, chest, esophagus, and major blood vessels of the body.
At CTVS, we pride ourselves on the fact that we provide care for entire spectrum of congestive, degenerative, and congenital heart and vascular disease. In addition to our surgical services, CTVS offers a variety of medical therapies to improve the quality of life for our patients who are not candidates for surgery or may be awaiting surgery on a transplant list.
CTVS is the largest group of its kind in Central Texas and offers virtually every type of elective and emergent surgery for heart valve disease and coronary artery disease to abdominal aortic aneurysm repair and peripheral arterial disease. CTVS surgeons have been instrumental in implementing cardiac programs from heart transplantation to minimally-invasive and robotic-assisted cardiac surgery in area hospitals.
