About Dr. Kelley Hutcheson,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Kelley Hutcheson and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 2006. To date, I have performed approximately 2,000 cardiac surgeries, of which 1,000 involved heart valve procedures. I regularly perform surgery at hospitals including Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital - Plano and Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano. Read more...
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 over 11 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.

"I was referred to Dr. Hutcheson by my cardiologist. From the first appointment with Dr. Hutcheson, she was very concerned and fully aware of any tests I had received.
She laid out various possible courses of action. She had me evaluated to determine any areas of risk and then set a plan of action that would minimize risks while maximizing results.
The surgery was very successful and her follow-up has been through and complete."
-- Ted Fredericks, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 02/17/2023
"Dr. Hutcheson came highly recommended. Did a great job and I felt a difference immediately. She and her staff made everything easy to understand and great follow up. Was able to get back in action alot sooner than expected. Hope I never have to, but If warranted, I would not hesitate to use Her again."
-- Mitchell Hammonds, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Median Sternotomy, 01/11/2023
"Great surgeon. I had a rough few days, but made a great recovery. She is very compassionate about her work and care of her patients. She does exactly what she tells you and goes the extra mile you request of her.
I am doing great and give me another few weeks and I will have my full stamina back. I was lucky She agreed to do the surgery. I am 79 and feel great. Her whole staff can't be beat. Great sense of humor and bedside manner. I owe them my 2nd chance at life. I had tissue valve which I don't regret. Love you all!"
-- Bessie Manning, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, Median Sternotomy, 10/27/2022
"Dr. Hutcheson came highly recommended and I am truly glad she did! She took amazing care of my husband. She is very detailed in her work and takes all the time needed to explain options and procedures and answers any and all questions you have. She definitely has a way of putting you at ease during a trying time."
-- John Kubat, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 07/28/2020
"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."
-- Fran Casey, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 10/12/2018
"After talking to Dr. Hutcheson, I felt her confidence as a heart surgeon, which gave me the courage to proceed with the surgery. Dr. Hutcheson is an outstanding brilliant surgeon. I felt safe and secure by her talking to me about the operation. Thank you, Dr. Hutcheson for your caring about me. I was highly impressed with Dr. Hutcheson's surgical performance. "
-- Harold Adler, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Maze Procedure, 08/02/2018
"I am so thankful and fortunate that Dr Hutcheson performed my surgery! She is highly talented in her field and truly passionate about her work. AND, she is personable. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a cardiac surgeon."
-- D Park, Mitral Valve, Valve Replacement, 02/02/2018
"Dr. Hutcheson is the best in this field. She literally touched my heart. Her demeanor and skill are just what you would want in the person you decide to put your trust into... i thank God for living in this time where Dr. Hutcheson earned and learned the skills to save hearts and lives."
-- Robert Williams, Pulmonary Valve, Median Sternotomy, Mini-Thoracotomy / Port Access, 06/30/2017
"My father was taken into the hospital on the day after Thanksgiving with chest pain. Long journey short - dad required a cabbage 4 - quadruple bypass surgery. Dr. Hutcheson and the staff at Baylor Heart Hospital could not have done a better job. Their communication and bed-side manner was tremendous. I highly recommend Dr. Hutcheson as well as Baylor Heart Hospital.
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)"

"I had a great experience with Dr. Hutcheson. She was very professional and truly concerned that everything was taken care of and done well. I am very pleased with my recovery; and haven't had any issues so far. The hospital also was an extremely nice place to be taken care of. "
-- Brian Schallow , Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 07/01/2016
"Dr. Hutcheson was totally professional but very personable and easy to tease with. She visited me every day for 12 days, even though I knew she had been at the hospital some days for 12 hours. You could tell all the nurses really respected her. She apologized when complications developed and I couldn't go home as soon as she had anticipated. I learned she has a signature way of tying sutures! The mitral valve repair was not successful even though she and Dr. Michael Mack did everything correctly, so I had to go back for mitral valve replacement. I told her the second time to just put in a zipper in case I had to come the third time. When my friends learned that I was having the second surgery and was going back to the same two surgeons, they thought I was crazy, but I told them I had literally put my life in their hands the first time and would gladly do it the second time. I do not anticipate a third time, but if it happens I will not consider anything other than Dr. Hutcheson and Dr. Mack and Baylor Heart Hospital Plano. Except for the surgeries, it was a vacation in a five-star resort with personal attention you cannot imagine."
-- Edward Cotharn, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Valve Replacement, Maze Procedure, 05/23/2016
"Dr. Hutcheson and the staff at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano gave me the best care! I have all the trust in the world with Dr. Hutcheson because of her attention to every detail to make sure that I would have a complete recovery. May God bless the great staff at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano. "
-- Mark Stephens, Pulmonary Valve, 01/02/2016
"I had aortic valve replacement performed at the Baylor Heart Hospital in Plano, Texas. Doctor Kelly A Hutcheson performed the surgery. She has got to be one of the top surgeons in the United States. The entire Baylor team was outstanding and one of the best in the country. I would highly recommend Baylor Heart Hospital and all of the team if you have any major heart problems. They are certainly one of the top five in the nation."
-- Bill Carruthers, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 04/14/2014
"Everything was great. My surgeon, Dr. Hutcheson, was wonderful."
-- Betty Brewer, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 04/04/2014
"Dr. Hutcheson is a great surgeon. I especially appreciated her taking the time to sit with me beforehand and discuss the procedures of my surgery and easing my mind. I have since moved out of Texas and yet her office and the hospital still calls to see how I'm doing. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing heart care. I would also like to thank Baylor Heart Hospital and all the staff in the cardiac unit for taking excellent care of me while I was there."
-- Vera Siren, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 03/21/2014
"Kelley was masterful in my surgery. She repaired 2 ASD's, PAPV, and a partial maze. Before the surgery, my O2Sat rarely was above 90, it's now a consistent 97!
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!"
