I believe my greatest strength is utilizing the best that modern technology has to offer to develop a uniquely optimized strategy for treating each individual patient. To achieve this goal, I spend time with my patients listening to their concerns and discerning their clinical problem before advising them of their treatment options. Finally, I answer the patient’s and family’s questions in detail to ensure that they understand what our collective plan is and what the goals are for their recovery in both the short and long-term. I believe that the best outcomes are achieved when patients and families understand the clinical problem, the possible solutions, and what our expected results should be.
I have been privileged to care for patients at some of the top-ranked medical facilities in this country for the past 8 years. Now, I am in practice at one of the best Heart Hospitals in the country where we offer specialized world-class care to our local community. Specifically, heart valve surgery is one of my passions and as such, I have trained to be able to offer the best there is in minimally-invasive techniques to manage heart valve disease. Lastly, I am blessed with a large group of multi-talented partners, cardiologists, and anesthesiologists who share my commitment to outstanding clinical care and provide a wide knowledge-base for discussion/referral when complex clinical situations arise. My professional calling is to provide the best clinical care that our ever-expanding research studies and clinical knowledge-base support as optimal for each and every cardiac surgery case.

"Dr. Hutcheson performed the surgery on my husband, John Casey. He needed a new aortic valve. She was clear, confident and explained to us the whole procedure and our options. We were able to make a choice quickly and in confidence that it was the right way to go, TAVR versus SAVR. She is a great surgeon with very good "bedside manners." We highly recommend her and her team at The Heart Hospital of Plano."

Dad left and went to Baylor Rehab which also did a great job. What was expected to be 2+ weeks of rehab ended up being 1 week and we had dad home on Christmas Eve - where he could be home with the family on Christmas day.
He has now started his home rehab and we are on the road to recovery. Todd Ferrell (son of David Ferrell)"

Suffice to say that going in to surgery, I had a minimal quality of life. Now, I am walking 1-2 miles a day and have renewed every aspect of my life!
Kelley, through her expertise saved my life, I actually hugged her upon my post-op followup! All my life I have been out of breath and struggled with any form of exercise, Kelley had a long list of fixup items for my heart. The surgery was long, the recovery was hard and painful. I am very blessed that Kelley was my surgeon!"
