About Dr. Eric Weiss,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Eric Weiss and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2003. To date, I have performed approximately 3,000 cardiac surgeries, of which over 1,500 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is my ability to technically perform the most complex operations on the aortic and mitral valves as well as the thoracic aorta (root, ascending and arch) with excellent results. This stems from the vast experience and training I have focusing on surgery for complex valvular pathology, advanced aortic surgery and heart failure. I routinely perform operations in a way that is less invasive than traditional methods leading to faster recoveries and improved quality of life for our patients.
Patients who come to me can rest assured that every aspect of their surgery and post operative care will be performed and directed solely by me, and not a student, resident, fellow or trainee. I constantly strive to provide the most innovative and cutting edge care possible in a kind and compassionate manner, treating each patient with dignity and respect.

"Dr. Weiss performed a successful TAVR and 3 Stents on my brother, Larry, on this day. The assessment and planning were meticulous. I am very thankful that it was a success. Very very thankful! God bless you and the team."

He came to see me three times in the hospital. He is very modern and up-to-date in the latest sense. I had though I wanted a surgeon with 30 years or "road work"... Not so.
His bedside manner was above what I could have hoped for. To book he accomplished an amazing minimally invasive incision. This is important to a woman.
I have already recommended Dr. Weiss to an acquaintance who needs the same surgery."

I will never forget him. God is good!"
