About Dr. Harold Roberts,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Harold Roberts and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from University of Arkansas in 1981. To date, I have performed approximately 4,500 cardiac surgeries, of which 3,500 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at West Virginia University Heart & Vascular Institute at WVU Medicine Ruby Memorial Hospital. Read more...
I believe my greatest strength is that over 95% of my cardiac procedures involve a heart valve. I routinely do complex multi-valvular procedures and re-vascularization, frequently in high risk patients referred or declined by other surgeons. In spite of this, my mortality rate is consistently well below the STS risk adjusted predicted mortality. In addition, I spend the majority of my time away from the practice attending valve meetings. Thus, I believe I consistently offer cutting edge techniques and equipment to provide my patients the best solutions for their heart valve problems.

In a matter of moments, Dr. Roberts realized that he could not perform a robotic surgery (as planned) and quickly switched the procedure to an open heart sternotomy to accommodate my husband’s unique anatomy. Previously, we visited specialists and other surgeons who did not recognize that my husband’s situation was more difficult than first anticipated. During a critical moment, Dr. Roberts knew exactly what to do.
There is no other choice, he's the BEST! A true expert, a professional, and a man with a GREAT heart."
